Ilaix Moriba has trained with the first team squad on Tuesday. The midfielder has worked with Ronald Koeman’s side in four successive sessions and he’s looking at the youngster, starting to be convinced to give him a chance.
That he was involved today, ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Athletic Bilbao at the San Mames, is a clear demonstration of his faith in him. Meanwhile, Carles Alena’s future looks further and further away from Camp Nou.
He’s in Madrid with the permission of the club to seal a loan to Camp Nou, where he will play for the rest of the season. That leaves Koeman with a gap and Ilaix may well fill it.
