Who is Marciano - Almeria's talented young striker?

The youngster has attracted major interest from many LaLiga sides

In January of last year, Marciano from Guinea-Bissau, age 19, transferred from Leixoes of Portugal to Almeria, joining the club’s B squad.

Marciano has played three times for Almeria’s reserve squad in league play without scoring. Romano thinks that the teenager is on the verge of making his LaLiga debut since he has been routinely practising with the first-team setup.

Atletico Madrid, Villarreal, and Brighton & Hove Albion are reportedly interested in signing Marciano, who hasn’t exactly created a name for himself at the senior level yet.

Joao Felix is anticipated to be completely sold, and Alvaro Morata’s future is also uncertain, thus Los Rojiblancos are prepared to search for a new centre striker.

Despite Diego Simeone’s access to Memphis Depay, Angel Correa, and Morata, Atletico Madrid will search for a new striker despite ties to Boca Juniors’ Mateo Retegui, who is presently on loan at Tigre.

Marciano has now become a potential target for Atletico Madrid, albeit doing so in the summer will not be simple. Marciano has now become a potential target for Atletico Madrid, albeit doing so in the summer will not be simple.

While the 19-year-contract old’s is set to expire in 2024, Almeria intends to retain him through this campaign due to a €40 million release clause.

So, the LaLiga team could want the whole release clause sum to stave off possible bidders like Atletico Madrid, who are unable to spend this much money on an inexperienced teenager.

How Marciano attracted interest from top-level clubs?

Since coming to Spain, Marciano Sanca has achieved significant advancements. The wunderkind from Guinea-Bissau moved from Leixoes of Portugal to Almeria. And with the reserve squad of the Spanish club, he has gotten stronger and stronger. The young player is presently playing football in Spain’s third tier.

But, Almeria B’s 18-year-old offensive wonder is making waves and may soon be promoted to the main squad. Sanca has furthermore been compared to a particular Rafael Leao. Nevertheless, his development has not gone ignored.

Marciano Sanca is the most talented striker to recently appear. In the months and years to come, it will be fascinating to see whether Leao and the “new Leao” both rank highly. Marciano Sanca is now on the radar of many elite clubs and let’s see how his progress goes at Almeria B.
