Rio de Janeiro, Oct 30: Catalan football giants Barcelo are set to secure Brazilian center-back Marlon on a permanent deal, according to media reports. Marlon has impressed with the Barcelo B team since leaving Brazilian club Fluminense on a six-month loan in June, reports Xinhua. A spate of injuries has prompted the Catalan club’s head coach Luis Enrique to call up Marlon to the first-team squad. The 21-year-old was an unused substitute in Barcelo’s 1-0 home victory over Grada in La Liga on Saturday. He is also expected to be included in the Blaugra squad for their trip to Manchester City in the Champions League in Tuesday. Brazil’s Lance news portal said the deal between Fluminense and Barcelo included a clause that allows the latter to secure Marlon on a permanent deal for two million euros ($2.19 million). IANS
