Marcos Paulo Leaves For Familição On Loan

+

Reportedly an unwanted transfer from Atleti manager Diego Simeone, Brazilian phenom Marcos Paulo will pack his bags and head to Portuguese club Famalicao for the rest of the 21/22 season. The former Fluminense star was touted to stay at Madrid for the rest of the season, but his muscle injury complicated things. His only appearance in a red-and-white jersey was against Numancia on July 23. It isn't likely that Paulo will become an important piece of the Atleti offense. He could be sold to another side for a profit. However, if he doesn't turn heads at Portugal, it's safe to say that he will not be staying at Madrid for a long time after the end of his loan.
