Uruguayan champions exploring loan deal for Manchester City winger – report

Manchester City winger Marlos Moreno is currently without a club to play football at after his loan deal at Brazilian side Flamengo expired at the end of 2018.

The 22-year-old Colombian international once again disappointed out on loan, just as he did at Deportivo La Coruña and Girona, and Flamengo decided against trying to extend his stay at the Maracanã.

That means City must find a new destination for Marlos, who has been linked with two other Brazilian clubs, São Paulo and Palmeiras.

Another South American option may appear soon though, with El VBar reporting that Uruguayan champions Club Atlético Peñarol are exploring the possibility of loaning Moreno.

Peñarol, who have won the last two Primera División titles in Uruguay, could offer Marlos a place to try and kick-start his career again, after his spell at Flamengo was panned by supporters.

The winger, who is under contract with City until June 2021, should have his future sorted by the end of January.
