Ilaix Moriba is back in Spain.The Guinean midfielder, who was loaned to Valencia last season, returns to a league he knows very well to try to relaunch his career in the Madrid suburbs. The arrival of the 20-year-old midfielder, loaned from RB Leipzig to Getafe until the end of the season, was announced by the Spanish club on Monday, even though he flew to the Africa Cup of Nations with Guinea.
At the end of this loan, Ilaix Moriba will also be free to sign for the club of his choice. He will have to convince before that, since the former great hope of FC Barcelona has not played a single minute this season with the German club, which had nevertheless not hesitated to pay 16 million euros in the summer of 2021.
Moriba is a talented midfielder with a lot of potential. He is strong on the ball, has good vision, and can create chances for his teammates. However, he has struggled to adjust to life in Germany and has been plagued by injuries.
His move to Getafe is a chance for him to get back to playing regularly and show what he can do. The Spanish club is known for its attacking style of play, which could suit Moriba’s strengths.
If he can impress at Getafe, Moriba could attract the attention of some of Europe’s top clubs. He will have to make the most of this opportunity if he wants to fulfil his potential.
