Report: Leipzig youngster wants to leave in January

Bild reports that former FC Barcelona midfielder Ilaix Moriba wants to leave RB Leipzig in January at all costs.
Ilaix Moriba is desperate to depart RB Leipzig in January just half a year after his move from FC Barcelona, according to Bild.

The 18-year-old central midfielder is unhappy with his lack of playing time and is expressing his frustration through his behavior and listless training performances, per the report.

Since Leipzig don't want a player in the squad, who is unhappy, Moriba could be sent out on loan in January.

Bild doesn't mention any interested clubs, but claims a return to Barcelona is not an option.

Leipzig paid €16 million to sign Moriba from Barcelona last summer. Since then, he has featured just six times for 'Die Roten Bullen'.
