Barcelona have officially announced the arrival of Rey Manaj from Albacete. The Albanian striker has been assigned to Barca B.
The whole operation cost the Catalans €700,000 and his previous club could earn up to €2m in add-ons depending on the player's performances. The 22-year-old has penned a contract until June 2023. His release clause has been set at €50m.
