🛑 CONFIRMED: Valencia sign Ilaix Moriba from Barcelona

Valencia have finalized the acquisition of an ex-Barcelona talisman.

Los Ché lost Daniel Wass to Atletico Madrid yesterday, but despite financial constraints, they have been busy in strengthening their team this month.

Valencia signed defender Eray Comert earlier this week and have now added former Barcelona youngster Ilaix Moriba to their ranks.

Ilaix joined RB Leipzig in the summer following a contentious conclusion to his stint in Catalonia. At only 19, he requires more consistent playing experience before breaking into one of the Bundesliga's stronger sides.

That is why he has been permitted to rejoin Valencia for the remainder of the season, returning to Spain on loan to join a Los Ché team hoping to challenge for a European position under Jose Bordalas.

Ilaix was roundly chastised by Barcelona for his departure, despite his demand for a lucrative deal that the club refused to offer.

He was finally released for that reason, with the center midfielder earning his keep with Leipzig.
