Barcelona prodigy Antonio Sanabria has been told he has no future at Barcelona until he resolves his future amid keen interest from Arsenal and Roma.
The 17-year-old's future at the club has fallen under scrutiny after he rejected an offer of a contract extension and he is now likely to leave the Catalan giants before the end of the season to sign a lucrative deal elsewhere.
But in response to his posturing, Barcelona B head coach Eusebio Sacristan dropped the Paraguayan international from the first team squad for his side's 2-2 draw with Alcorcon – a result which left his side hovering just above the relegation zone – despite his impressive return of three goals in his last six games.
Mundo Deportivo suggest the forward's exile from the Barcelona B team will continue until a decision is made regarding his future.
In a bid to hold onto one of the most highly regarded talents in the club's youth ranks, Barcelona have attempted to get Sanabria to put pen to paper on a contract extension with his current deal set to expire in 2015, but the teenager's refusal to do so has left his future in doubt.
With his release clause currently standing at just £2.5m, the youngster has been heavily linked with a move to Roma this month, although the Serie A club would have to wait until the summer to introduce him to the team due to their quota of foreign players at its maximum.
Although Mundo Deportivo fail to name the Premier League team still interested, Arsenal have long been linked with a move for the forward in addition to a number of other Premier League sides, as revealed by his agent last year.
Despite his tender years, Sanabria has already been capped three times for Paraguay. Arsenal's limited options up front were further compounded by the news that Theo Walcott will miss the remainder of the season through injury, a development which is likely to prompt Arsene Wenger into bringing an additional forward to the Emirates Stadium.
Should Sanabria's standoff with his club continue, a move is likely to transpire this month.
