Alberto Moleiro is one of the hottest prospects in the Spanish second division right now. Currently plying his trade for Las Palmas, the exciting attacking midfielder has racked up eight assists in the league so far, helping the Canaries remain on top of the league table.

Moleiro’s performances have not gone unnoticed either, with Barcelona among the clubs reportedly interested in his services.

However, the Catalans are set to face immense competition from not only Real Madrid but also Premier League clubs, as we approach the summer transfer window.

This has been confirmed by Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez, during an interview with Que’ T’hi Jugues. “Apart from Barça and Real Madrid, there are other teams interested in signing Moleiro. Several teams in England, for example,” he said.

The increased competition for Moleiro does not bode well for Barcelona, especially knowing the fact that money could be a major factor, as far as the youngster’s pursuit is concerned.

This is because Moleiro already has a release clause worth €30 million embedded in his current contract. That figure could increase up to €60 million if Las Palmas secure promotion to La Liga next season, which is likely the case.

The Canaries are currently leading the table in the second division, with a three-point lead over second-placed Levante, even though the latter have a game in hand.

In addition to revealing competition for Moleiro, Ramirez confirmed the player’s botched move to Camp Nou last summer, adding, “I haven’t talked to Barça about Moleiro since last summer. There was an agreement in principle with Barça last summer, but financial FairPlay didn’t allow us to find a solution.”

Barcelona are expected to find similar economic issues this time around as well. But with key players being subjected to a move away from Camp Nou, it remains to be seen whether or not the Catalans can balance the books in order to afford the Las Palmas starlet.
