Breaking Football Transfer – Moriba Joins Leipzig from Barca

Breaking Football Transfer – Moriba Joins Leipzig from Barca

Ilaix Moriba has moved to RB Leipzig in Germany following a disagreement over a new Barcelona contract (the football news). So, with the 18-year-old youth making news of a breaking football transfer, Moriba joins Leipzig from Barca.

Having thus far been a Barcelona prospect, Ilaix Moriba has joined RB Leipzig for an initial fee of €16 million.

Previous rumours cited Tottenham as being interested in Moriba.

However, Marcel Sabitzer’s departure for Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich on Monday allowed Moriba to make RB Leipzig transfer rumours true.

Central defender Ilaix Moriba is thus the new signing for RB Leipzig, where he will replace Bayern-bound captain Marcel Sabitzer.

Moriba was unable to reach an agreement with Barcelona to extend his contract. It was going expire at the end of the 2021-22 season anyway.

Then, Barcelona president Joan Laporta stated that Moriba would not be able to play for the first team like this. Unless he committed his future to Barca, Moriba would see no first-team action at Camp Nou.

In light of this, Leipzig has taken advantage of the situation to bring the player to Germany instead.

“I’m very happy that my move to RB Leipzig worked out – an exciting club that has always had an offensive style of play and therefore fits my game very well,” Moriba, who has signed a five-year deal, told his new club’s website.  

“I am convinced that Leipzig is the ideal next step for my career and further development – that was ultimately the reason for my decision to change.   

“My whole concentration is now fully on arriving at the club, in the team, and in the city, in order to then perform on the pitch as quickly as possible. We have ambitious goals for this season and I can hardly wait for the challenge.”
