A plot twist. On Wednesday RAC1 announced that Mateu Morey would be going to Bayern Munich. The news caught many at La Masia by surprise, coaches and players. After that various executives moved to try and stop the player leaving and it was successful. 

Sources told SPORT that Bayern Munich have told Barcelona that they will not sign Morey. The U-turn by the Bavarian club happened because they did not like the leak of the deal with the player, with Hermann Gerland, a member of Ancelotti's coaching staff, coming out to deny the deal to Kicker. Another factor was Barcelona's quick movements to stop it.

Morey is still a Barcelona player and will take on next season in the Juvenil A team. The right-back has a lot of potential and clubs like Bayern are prowling. Barcelona are still on alert though, in case any Premier League sides come calling.
