• NT: No Fifa contact from Morocco amid claims national team wants Munir to end Spain allegiance

    Fifa have yet to be contacted by Morocco regarding claims that the African nation want Barcelona striker Munir El Haddadi to switch his allegiance from Spain.

    Munir has made one senior appearance for Spain, which came in a World Cup qualifier against Macedonia in September 2014. Although born and raised in Spain, both of his parents are Moroccan.

    Despite boasting an impressive record of ten goals in 16 games for Spain at U21 level, Munir wasn’t included in the squad for the European Championship for that age group, which is currently taking place in Poland.

    Samuel Marsden, the Barcelona correspondent for ESPN, tweeted: “Been told “FIFA have not been contacted in connection with the player Munir El Haddadi and the Moroccan Football Federation.

    “That from a FIFA spokesperson to reports Munir (who’s played a competitive game for Spain) will be allowed to switch allegiance to Morocco.”

    Munir is also facing an uncertain future at club level, with the striker having returned to Barcelona following a loan spell at Valencia.

    The 21-year-old showed some glimpses of his ability during his temporary spell, and scored seven goals across all competitions, but there have been suggestions that he could be sold by Barcelona, with Zenit St Petersburg amongst the clubs linked with him.
