“Ilaix moriba? It was not possible to keep him because of his attitude,” Barcelona’s vice-president Rafa Yuste has told Mundo Deportivo.
“We need to send a message to people who come from the La Masia. You need to love the club more than money. These are lines that cannot be crossed,” he added.
Ilaix Moriba reportedly left the club because of his agency’s high financial demands. The 18-year-old joined RB Leipzig for €16m in the summer.
By the way, the youngster has made his Bundesliga debut, featuring against Bochum (3-0) for 11 minutes.
With Barcelona, the central midfielder made 18 appearances, scoring one goal and providing 3 assists.
