Monaco raid Barca for starlet Mboula
French champions Monaco plucked promising teenage winger Jordi Mboula from Barcelona on a five-year deal on Wednesday, the Ligue 1 club announced.
Mboula, 18, shone during last season’s UEFA Youth League, scoring eight goals in as many matches, and the Spain youth international becomes Monaco’s fifth signing of the close season.
“Jordi Mboula demonstrated some great things with Barca’s academy and Monaco are offering him an ideal environment to carry on his development,” said Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.
Monaco have already signed Belgian international midfielder Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht, young defender Jordy Gaspar from Lyon, Swiss international goalkeeper Diego Benaglio from Wolfsburg and midfielder Soualiho Meite from Belgian side Zulte Waregem.
