DONE DEAL: Monaco sign Barca’s Mboula

Monaco have completed a deal for highly-rated Barcelona forward Jordi Mboula after activating his €3m release clause.

The French champions confirmed the 18-year-old has signed a five-year deal at the Stade Louis II, while no buyback clause has been included in the agreement.

"In life, there are moments when we have to make decisions and after a thinking about things very deeply, I decided I have to accept this new challenge," Mboula publicly wrote on his Twitter account.

"I feel ready and motivated to be able to perform as a player at one of Europe's biggest clubs.

"I want to thank everyone at Barcelona that's helped and supported me throughout the last eight seasons, I feel very proud to have defended the club's shirt."

Mboula scored eight goals in nine games in the U19s UEFA Youth League and his performances saw him go on to make several appearances for Barcelona B.

First reported by Diario Sport earlier this week, the deal will go through immediately as the teenager becomes Monaco's fifth signing of the summer to date.
