Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has told Munir El Haddadi that he will not play for the club again, according to Spanish daily Marca.
The 23-year-old has been a bit part player this season for the Catalan side and will see his current contract expire in June.
Interest from a number of clubs has been reported in Spain, whilst Premier League sides are said to have monitored his performances when given the chance by Valverde this season.
Those chances will now end though, according to a report, which claims the Barca boss has told the Moroccan international that he will not select him again this season.
Munir spent last season on loan with Alaves, scoring an impressive 14 league goals in 37 appearances, and he has been linked with a pre-agreement to Sevilla.
In total, the striker has made 33 appearances for Barcelona in La Liga, but has made just one start this season.
Further reports in Catalan media have claimed that Munir could see his contract terminated this month (January) – in order for Valverde to bring a back-up to Luis Suarez, who has played through various knee problems this term.
An argument can be made though for the likes of Malcom, who has been waiting in the wings for more playing time, having joined the club last summer.
Is it the right decision to allow Munir to leave?
Munir El Haddadi told he will not play again this season for @FCBarcelona. Time has run out at the club, but he does deserve consistent football elsewhere. Pre-contract with Sevilla reported #LaLigaNewsUK
