Ilaix Moriba is one of the newest La Masia product to break into the Barcelona team this season, establishing and building himself as a part of the midfield and providing a lot of hope for the future with his energy and skill.
Moriba has reportedly rejected better offers from other big clubs in Europe, according to an interview from Ilaix’s father, Mamady Moriba, who says the two rejected advances from the Premier League and Italy to play for Barca.
Mamady Moriba, ilaix’s Father also praised Ronald Koeman for giving his son a chance, and as every proud father he’s very excited for Ilaix’s future at the club.
“We said no to a lot of money because Ilaix wanted to play for Barça. We had offers from Chelsea, Manchester City and Juventus that were bigger than Barca, and I canceled a trip to Manchester because Barca made a strong bet. We’ll go to death with the Culés and we want to stay at Barca.
“I have no words to describe [Koeman], we have to thank him so much for everything he has done for Ilaix and all the confidence he has given him. Also thank you to the club and everyone who has helped Ilaix in all the years at La Masia.”
