Ilaix Moriba has been one of the sensations at Barça in recent weeks and next season he could have a first-team record. In fact, his emergence has meant that the Catalans have practically ruled out Wijnaldum, who would arrive for free
Georginio Wijnaldum, that finishes agreement this same summer, went one of the signings that Ronald Koeman asked when it arrived to the FC Barcelona. The trainer of Zaandam wanted to that the culés closed the incorporation of his compatriot. It spoke during weeks of the signing, but finally the Barcelona did not decide by economic subjects. The Liverpool asked too much and the Catalans were not in disposal to spend this money.
But the mediocampista follows without having renewed to these heights and is speaking a lot of his possible arrival to the Barça this summer. The one of Rotterdam would arrive to cost zero, by what only would be necessary to pay his wage and perhaps a premium by signing. However, according to the information of 'Sport', now that his incorporation is to shot is when the player is more far to land in the Camp Nou.
The culprit of this would be Ilaix Moriba, the big disclosure in the group barcelonista these last weeks. The canterano of alone 18 years has done with a gap in the rotation of Koeman and is showing that has level to play in the first team. His irruption is what seems to have finished to cool the interest of the Catalans in Wijnaldum, since they are alike profiles and would be an unnecessary cost.
To eyes of the club and of the own Dutch trainer, the guinean jewel gathers similar physical qualities that the one of the Liverpool and has more quality and sense of the game. It is evident that defensivamente, to level of character and of experience, 'Gini' is enough by in front, but technically speaking Ilaix surpasses him. His tender 18 years do him be a bet of future that can give a good immediate performance, whereas the Dutch has already 30 years and is a bet for already.
The technician culé wanted to his compatriot because it did not have in staff a half physicist of his profile, but with Moriba already has this type of midfield player. The canterano happens of the 1,85 and physically is a portento that still goes to grow much more in the next years. Perhaps it finish approaching to the 1,90 and little by little will go winning muscular mass that will do him happen to the following level. Besides, it is necessary to take into account that he knows the philosophy and the game of the Barça from boy, whereas the adaptation of the Dutch is an incógnita.
The wage of Ilaix would be very inferior to the of Wijnaldum
Besides, in the case of Ilaix it is necessary to take into account that his wage when it renew, something that Laporta wants to tackle in brief, will be netamente inferior to what would ask Wijnaldum. The 'network' wants to sign the last big agreement of his career and will not conform with little money. By this reason, the Barcelona practically there would be descartado his signing and would bet by the international in inferior categories of Spain, that would happen to have official index card with the greater.
