Uber is seeking capital from Morgan Stanley's network of high-net worth clients in its latest funding round, sources told CNBC Monday.

Retail investors with Morgan Stanley could pledge a $250,000 minimum to the company at $48.72 a share, sources said. The Morgan Stanley round would mark an expansion for the company toward retail investors on top of existing venture capital funding for the on-demand ride-hailing start-up.
