RB Leipzig lends top talent Ilaix Moriba to FC Valencia

Just under five months after his commitment, Ilaix Moriba is already leaving the Bundesliga soccer club RB Leipzig.

The 19-year-old Guinean international has been loaned out to Spanish first division side FC Valencia until the end of the season. The club announced.

The loan should not include a purchase option. Moriba was still in action at the Africa Cup of Nations until Monday, the midfielder has only played 100 minutes for Leipzig. Moriba is still tied to RB until 2026.

Moriba was signed by FC Barcelona in the summer for 16 million euros. Media chief Florian Scholz described the deal as a “sustainable transfer with a clear direction for our future”.

Club boss Oliver Mintzlaff recently emphasized that the coaching team would “work intensively with him” after the Africa Cup of Nations. A different path was decided at short notice, as Moriba is said to be given a lot of playing time in Valencia.
