Barça will force Munir to make a decision on his future once he's returned from the club's US tour. The coaching staff are delighted with his performance but his contractual situation conditions his status in the squad. Munir's existing deal expires next June and there's a good offer on the table from Sevilla. This means the player must decide: sign a new contract with Barça and fight for his place or be sold to Sevilla so the club can recover some money for their investment in his development.

Munir has convinced Ernesto Valverde that he could play a role in Barcelona's squad next season. The coach told Munir he'd be backup for Luis Suarez next season, essentially ending Alcacer's time at the Camp Nou. However, Barça aren't willing to keep him at the club if he won't sign a new contract knowing that they could lose him for nothing next summer.

The situation has been further complicated by Sevilla's offer, one which Barça feel is fair in the current market. All parties are set to meet next week in Barcelona to resolve the matter at hand.

Barça are willing to sell Munir and Alcacer as they consider the squad has enough firepower in the forward positions to cover any potential injuries. There are deals in place for both players to leave but Munir now knows what he must do if he wants to stay: sign a new contract.
