Munir El Haddadi Mohamed, often known as simply Munir, is a Moroccan professional football player who plays forward for the Moroccan national team and Spanish club Getafe (born 1 September 1995).
Munir started his career in the Atlético Madrid junior system before moving to Barcelona in 2011, where he went on to win the 2013–14 UEFA Youth League. He made his B-team debut in March 2014, and in August of that same year, at the start of the senior team’s treble-winning season, he scored in his first game. He was among the top five scorers in his team’s Copa del Rey victory the following year.
Munir, a Moroccan-born Spaniard, made his international debut for Spain on September 8, 2014, against Macedonia. After FIFA changed its regulations in 2021, he shifted his allegiance to Morocco, and he later represented the team at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Munir was born in El Escorial, Madrid, and raised in the neighboring Galapagar neighborhood on a street described by El Mundo as “Little Morocco.” His Moroccan father, Mohamed El Haddadi Arbrqui, who is now a chef, arrived in Spain in a fishing boat when he was 18 years old.
His mother, Saida Mohamed Haddou, a former kitchen assistant who now takes care of Munir’s three siblings, comes from the north coast of Africa’s Spanish autonomous city of Melilla. Munir supported Real Madrid all the way up to the age of 14.
After beginning at Galapagar and DAV Santa Ana, Munir scored 32 goals in 29 games while on loan from Atlético Madrid to CF Rayo Majadahonda’s Cadete A club after standing out during a trial in 2010.
However, he was offered the chance to join the squads of Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid, but both clubs declined. He received attention from several teams as a consequence, including Manchester City, but decided to join Barcelona’s junior system the next summer.
Munir scored two goals on his UEFA Youth League debut for the Juvenile team against Ajax U19. He finished the tournament with 11 goals in 10 games, including braces against Milan U-19 and Copenhagen U-19. In the championship game versus Benfica U19, he scored twice. He renewed his Barça contract until June 2017 on March 3, 2014.
Munir made his professional debut for Barcelona B on March 2, 2014, in a 1-2 away win over Mallorca in the second tier, replacing Sandro in the 72nd minute after going unused against Tenerife and Deportivo de La Corua. On April 19, he scored his first goal as a senior player in a 2-1 victory over Girona at home.
Munir made his official La Liga debut on August 24, 2014, at Camp Nou, against Elche. He began the game, contributed to the eventual 3-0 victory with the second goal, and was replaced by Pedro after 67 minutes. He passed Bojan and Lionel Messi to become Barcelona’s third-youngest goal scorer eight days shy of his 19th birthday. Munir was a 2014 Golden Boy Award contender.
Munir received two cautions on February 22, 2015, as Barcelona B lost 0-1 against Llagostera, and the team was subsequently relegated to Segunda División B. He participated in Barcelona’s victorious campaigns in the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League by appearing in three games each, although he was not included in the matchday teams.
Munir did not play in their 5-4 victory over Sevilla in the 2015 UEFA Super Cup on August 11. He scored two goals in a 6-1 victory over Villanovense on December 2 to give him his first goals for Barcelona since his debut, and Barcelona proceeded to the domestic cup semifinals by the same margin overall.
A penalty kick was awarded to Barcelona on December 17 after Munir was fouled by Huang Bowen of Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao during the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals in Yokohama due to the injuries to Messi and Neymar. Luis Suárez then completed his hat-trick to send Barcelona into the championship with a score of 3-0. The South American pair came back for the championship match, in which Barcelona defeated River Plate 3-0 without Munir.
Munir scored both goals in a cup victory against city rivals Espanyol on January 13, 2016, taking advantage of Suárez’s suspension to advance Barcelona into the quarterfinals 6-1 overall. He was not utilized in the final, a 2-0 victory against Sevilla in extra time, on May 22, but with five goals, he finished the tournament with the most goals, along with Messi and Suárez.
Munir doubled Barcelona’s lead over Sevilla in the 2016 Supercopa de Espaa first leg on August 14, 2016, when he entered the game as a substitute. This gave Barcelona a two-goal advantage going into the second leg.
Before his deal with Barcelona was about to expire in the summer, Munir was given the option to extend it, but he declined. Coach Ernesto Valverde of Barcelona promised him that he would not play for the team again and that selling him would be “for the best.” The forward was sought after by a number of clubs in England and Italy, but Sevilla was able to secure his services in January 2019 for about €1 million. Instead of waiting until the summer, the deal might be finished before the transfer windows closed in January.
Munir made his Sevilla debut in a 2-0 loss against Athletic Bilbao on January 13 by coming on for the final 12 minutes in place of Roque Mesa. His first goals came in March, one in each half of a Europa League last-16 match against SK Slavia Prague, which the Czech team ultimately won 6-5 on the road. He finished the league season with five goals in 16 games, including a 2-0 victory over Athletic on the final day to secure the team’s return to the continental tournament.
On November 7, 2019, Munir grabbed a hat-trick in a 5-2 Europa League group-stage victory against F91 Dudelange, advancing his club to the round of 32 and bringing his total in the campaign to five. In a 2-1 away victory against Krasnodar on November 24, 2020, Munir scored his first Champions League goal. The goal, which came in stoppage time, advanced his club to the knockout rounds.
Munir transferred to neighboring top-tier team Getafe on August 31, 2022.
Munir, the son of a Moroccan father who was born and reared in Spain, was qualified to represent any country internationally. Munir reportedly received a cash offer from Qatar to adopt that nation’s citizenship and represent the country, which will host the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
Munir received his first call-up for Albert Celades’ Spain under-21 squad on August 29, and he was one of 21 players selected for the team’s September matches against Hungary and Austria. Vicente del Bosque, however, summoned Munir up to the senior team for the first time ahead of a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Macedonia on September 8 due to Diego Costa’s injury.
Munir and the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) reportedly asked FIFA in June 2017 to switch his allegiance to Morocco. A FIFA representative, however, denied any communication and asserted that the player was ineligible for a transfer.
In April 2018, the Court of Arbitration for Sport started considering FIFA’s guidelines on changing allegiances at the request of Munir and the FRMF. On May 14, his request to represent Morocco was turned down.
On October 1, 2020, Munir once more tried to move from Spain to Morocco and was called up to their national team as a result of a FIFA rule change that permitted a player to change their national team provided they had made three or fewer appearances in qualifying before the age of 21.
However, FIFA rejected this change as well because Munir had represented Spain’s U21 squad in September 2016 after turning 21. FIFA released the eligibility rules for national teams on January 28, 2021, and Munir was given the go-ahead to represent Morocco because he had already played once for Spain before turning 21.
