Report: Marcano Close to Porto Return After Only 12 Months

The Spanish defender didn’t have many chances to play last season. Marcano would be ready to return to his former side, Porto. The deal should be finalized soon.

Many did not know Marcano when Monchi decided to bring him to the Italian capital. He was an experienced player who made several appearances with the Portuguese powerhouse. He had played on the international stage continuously and, moreover, he was a free-agent.

Although his experience at Roma has been disappointing, the Italian side made a deal anyway. This is the beauty of signing a player on his way out from his previous club. The 32-year-old played only slightly more than 1,000 minutes with the Giallorossi. 13 appearances and only 1 goal for the defender from Santander (Spain).

His stats with the Italian side are not appealing at all but Petrachi may have found a solution to monetize on his departure. Reportedly, Ivan Marcano should be ready to wear the jersey of the Dragoes again. As reported by Sky Sport, this deal should be finalized tomorrow and Porto may make it official as well.

The Spanish defender has not been summoned by Roma for the summer retreat, another sign that his adventure close to the Colosseum is almost over. Reportedly, Porto would pay about €5 million to get him back. Roma would make good profits from a player who definitely underperformed last season.
