Barcelona sign former Inter striker Rey Manaj for €700,000

Barcelona have signed Rey Manaj from Second Division outfit Albacete Balompié for an initial €700,000, with the former Inter Milan striker agreeing a contract until June 2023. The fee could rise by a further two million euros in bonueses if the player completes performance-based incentives over the next three and a half years, with 22-year-old Manaj set to line-up for Barca B in the third tier.

Rey Manaj's spells in Italy and Spain

After starting his senior career with Cremonese in 2013, the Albania international – who has a €50m release clause in his Barça contract – moved to Inter Milan three years later, making six appearances for the club during a stint that included loans to Pescara, Pisa and Granada.

Manaj joined Albacete in July 2018 on loan with an obligation to buy. He scored nine goals in 39 league appearances for the Segunda División club.
