Barcelona agree Ilaix Moriba deal with RB Leipzig – report

It looks like Ilaix Moriba will seal a late departure from Barcelona with reports claiming the Catalan giants have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig on a move for the midfielder.

According to ESPN, the Bundesliga side has agreed a permanent deal with the youngster for a fee of up to 20 million euros (27.5 million dollars).

The teenager is now expected to fly to Germany for a medical before putting pen to paper on a five-year contract with RB Leipzig.

Moriba’s future has been making headlines for weeks after the midfielder was unable to agree on a contract extension, which expires in 2022.

Barca have demoted the youngster to the reserves and have threatened to leave him in the stands for the entire 2021-2022 campaign if he didn’t renew and move on.

Coach Ronald Koeman has spoken out about Moriba’s situation, admitting it was “terrible” and also advising the teenager to focus more on football than money.

RB Leipzig, Tottenham and Chelsea have all been linked with a move for Moriba, but it looks like the Bundesliga side has won the race and the saga is finally over.
