Munir El Haddadi made his debut with Spain in September 2014 against Macedonia. However, he has not played for the senior team since and has now even dropped out of the Under-21 side.

Despite his presence in the U21 side in recent seasons, though, it now seems as though the Barcelona forward does not have a clear future with La Joja. 

That's because the Moroccan Football Federation have asked FIFA for Munir to be allowed to play for them.

Munir's mother is Spanish and his father is from Morocco, so in theory he could play for either country. 

However, the 21-year-old, who spent this season on loan at Valencia, played for Spain in a qualifier for Euro 2016 so in theory is now committed to Spain. 

But Morocco have called in French lawyer Michel Boyon to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in a bid to free Munir to play for Morocco.
