Barça have confirmed that 21-year-old defender Mika Marmol left the club and joined FC Andorra.
Here’s the club’s offical statement:
“FC Barcelona and FC Andorra have reached an agreement for the transfer of player Mika Mármol. The Club retains 50% of the rights to the Terrassa central and reserves a buyback option.”
The young center-back drew plaudits last season for his performances with Barca B. Therefore, he was a candidate to make it into the first team.
However, the arrivals of Jules Kounde and Andreas Christensen seem to blocked Marmol’s path. Now, he decided to look for a new challenge.
Marmol now joins up with FC Andorra. Their coach is Quique Setien’s former assistant Eder Sarabia. Moreover, the woner of the club is Gerard Pique’s Kosmos company.
He will also meet few familiar faces there. For example, Jandro Orellana signed for Andorra few weeks ago.
