The club is about to seal the loan of this young centre-back that would play in Gerard López's Barça B
Marlon Santos' loan to Barça B is closer and closer to being sealed. On Monday the footballer's agent traveled to Brazil and worked in the operation talks inside the facilities of Fluminense, the current holder of the promising 20 year-old defender.
According to Weloba's information, if everything goes according to both parties' expectations, the deal will be sealed during the week, as they are still various things to be discussed, and in the weekend the player and his agent will be able to travel to Barcelona.
According to Sport, Marlon Santos is said to arrive on loan with a buyout option of 1.8 million Euros to reinforce the centre of the defence in Gerard López's reserve team. Barça B want to put together a stronger team than last season to get the promotion to Segunda A (Third Division).
