Barcelona announced just a formal contract with the first striker of Albania’s national football team.
The Catalan club published a statement revealing the access to Ray Manai, coming from Albacete, in a deal worth only 700,000 euros.
The Albanian striker’s contract with Barca extends to the summer of 2023, with a penalty clause of 50 million euros.
The 22-year-old has previously played for Inter, Pescara, Pisa, Granada and, finally, Albacete, who is active in the Spanish second division.
Will “Manai” participate with the first team in Barca? An alternative to Uruguay Suarez?
Forward Luis Suarez suffered a severe injury to his right knee, which is why he is out of action until the end of the season.
Barcelona decided to send the new striker Manay, to the reserve team, Barcelona B, where he will participate in the third division.
The new striker, with Albacete this season, scored only 10 goals in 41 games, in all official competitions.
