It comes just two days after the central midfielder celebrated his 18th birthday and he now has a late present as he is given his senior debut for the Catalan giants.
A report in Marca now outlines why there is a great deal of excitement around the teenage superstar who has a €100m release clause despite never having played a senior game.
The Guinea-born central midfielder most commonly plays in a playmaker role for Barca’s youth sides and he is one of La Masia’s brightest prospects and has put in a series of star appearances this year.
He joined the club aged seven from Catalan rivals Espanyol and has blossomed into a potential star in the decade since, winning great admiration and respect from his coaches across the youth system at the club.
Moriba penned a long-term deal at the Camp Nou in April 2019 to ward off interest from Europe’s elite clubs – most notably Manchester City and Juventus.
It is said that his playing style is similar to Paul Pogba – his idol as a child – and his combination of physical strength with technical quality makes him stand out.
