Monaco have completed the signing of Barcelona youth prospect, Jordi Mboula, paying his release clause of €3 million.
The Spanish forward rejected the chance to extend his contract with Barcelona, by signing a five-year deal with Monaco.
Mboula, who is in search of first team football, will become an integral part of Leonardo Jardim’s squad.
“Jordi Mboula has shown very good things with the youth teams of FC Barcelona and AS Monaco offers him an ideal environment to continue his progress,” Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said after the deal was confirmed on Wednesday.
“As we have done with players such as Bernardo Silva, Fabinho and Tiemoue Bakayoko, we will help him grow in our team.”
Spain youth international Mboula becomes Monaco’s fifth signing of the transfer window, following the arrivals of Youri Tielemans, Soualiho Meite, Jordy Gaspar and Diego Benaglio.
