    That said, he looks slightly shorter than Abidal here.

    And significantly taller than Fati
    Abidal is 1.86, while Fati is "unofficially" 1.78 as his height isn't listed on official website (at least English version) and there is many cases were players of that age wasn't accurately listed.
    I would guess he is around 1.84, same height as Rakitic. Good but not very tall.

    Tbh Alena was a lot more dominant in his Juvenil A/B days. Excited to see how Moriba will perform in senior level football.

    Being dominant in Youth Teams doesn't mean you'll have more success.

    Gerard Deulofeu was one of the most dominant Youth Players ever.

    Never said that Moriba will be less successful.
    Just stating the fact since you were mentioning his recent stats which also doesn't mean much.
    But tbh I try not to have high hopes for him since he doesn't look like a player with elite footballing intelligence. Will have to see how he will perform as he won't be able to use his physique as he progresses.

    Most of top, world-class players.
    That is what I meant by "high hopes".
    Otherwise, La Masia has been consistently producing top 5 European league mid table team level of players so that doesn't mean much if that is what you expect from him.

    The potential is impressive and should benefit from Pimienta's coaching

    Ansu is listed at 1.72m, would guess Moriba is closer to 1.84

    We apparently rejected a loan offer from RBL for Ilaix. This doesn't make too much sense imo. I don't think he's ready to play for their first team so why would RBL want him unless they would include a buy option. And rejecting their offer is much more understandable in that case.

    But if it's truly just a loan and they would give him first team minutes then I wouldn't mind loaning him for a season or even two (we'd need to extend his current contract which expires in 2022 first in that case) to develop under Nagelsmann. It's probably still the best for him to play regularly for Barca B and maybe get some first team minutes next season though.

    RBL are obviously trying to be that guy who makes friends with the fat chick, just to get their hot friend. Except in this case the fat chick is Ilaix Moriba and the hot chick is Ilaix Moriba at 19.

    I won't mind the deal if it is made on our own terms which is unlikely.
    Renew him till 2024, loan for a couple of years and ask for 1st option on Karim Adeyemi
