The Catalan giants' La Liga rivals have now confirmed via their official club website that the 23-year-old has signed a contract with them, with a fee for the winger reported to be in the region of €1m.
Morata is highly paid in England and Barcelona are not looking for a starting striker, instead a backup to Suarez, and the Spaniard does not have the backing of everyone at the club.
Valverde was also asked what type of forward he would like to sign this month.
Munir made his debut for Barcelona aged just 18 when the Catalans took on Elche under Luis Enrique in the 2014/2015 season.
However, Munir had not played for the club since a start in the Champions League against Tottenham, with Barcelona having already locked up the top spot in their group. He has won one worldwide cap for Spain, in September 2014.
Alvaro Morata's time at Chelsea has been rather torrid and the misfiring striker is likely to be leaving the Blues in the January transfer window, as Maurizio Sarri looks to offload the attacker in order to bring in a new face at Stamford Bridge.
Sevilla had met with Morata's representatives over a potential deal but found the proposed loan move too expensive.
