Miguel Ángel Moyà Rumbo (born 2 April 1984) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Atlético Madrid as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]


Born in Binissalem, Majorca, Moyà made his professional debut with hometown RCD Mallorca on 29 August 2004 in a 0–1 home loss against Real Madrid, appearing in 32 La Liga games for a team that barely avoided relegation (17th). After backing up another youth system product, veteran Toni Prats, for two years, he became the undisputed starter.

From 2007 to 2009, however, Moyà struggled mightily with injuries, only appearing in thirteen matches for the Balearic Islands side in the latter season.[1]


In late June 2009 Moyà agreed on a move to fellow top division club Valencia CF, for about 5 million.[2] On 5 August, in the club's preseason 0–2 defeat at Manchester United, he featured more than 30 minutes as central midfielder after all the replacements had been made by Unai Emery and an injury occurred; the score was then at 0–1.[3]

Moyà made his official debut against Sevilla FC in the league's opener, a 2–0 home win,[4] but quickly lost his job to veteran César Sánchez after some costly mistakes.


On 15 June 2011 Moyà joined Getafe CF on loan, as part of the deal involving Daniel Parejo.[5] At the end of the campaign, in which he only missed two league games as the Madrid outskirts team again retained its division status, he signed a permanent four-year contract.[6]

Moyà suffered a knee injury in March 2014 during a game against RCD Espanyol, being ruled out for the remainder of the season.[7]

Atlético Madrid[edit]

On 4 June 2014, Moyà signed a three-year contract with league champions Atlético Madrid,[8] for a reported fee of €3 million.[9]

International career[edit]

A Spanish under-21 international, Moyà participated in the qualification stage for the 2007 European Championship, in a final aggregate defeat to Italy.[10]
