Rafa Mujica was released by Barcelona in summer 2019, when his contract with the Catalan club came to an end.
The forward had been getting appearances for Barca’s B team, but the club thought there were more talented youngsters coming through who they wanted to give the minutes to instead.
Leeds United stepped in and signed the Spaniard up on a contract which lasts until the end of June 2022. He was then sent out on loan to Extremadura UD, and spells at Villarreal B and Oviedo have followed.
Mujica hasn’t managed to find somewhere he can kick on, and despite his Oviedo loan lasting until the end of the season, it’s thought he’ll return to Leeds United this month. There is interest in Spain’s lower divisions, with UD Las Palmas an interesting option, yet nothing has been finalised yet.
La Voz de Asturias, a regional newspaper for Oviedo, reports Mujica is one of a number of players currently ‘disgruntled’ and ‘looking for minutes’. Both Leeds and Oviedo will now have to find a solution, to hopefully stop the 22-year-old’s career from stagnating.
