SHOCKING NEWS: Reports coming from Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona would receive a massive windfall should Atletico Madrid complete the signing of their wonderkid. Atletico Madrid are said to be hot on his tail, according to Fabrizio, and a transfer materialising would also be great news for Barcelona.

In the unlikely event that Atletico Madrid completes Mika Marmol's signing, Barcelona would benefit greatly.


The defender from UD Las Palmas has truly stood out in LaLiga this season, playing a key role in fortifying the league’s second-best defense. Positioned ninth in the league standings, the newly promoted team has only conceded 15 goals, highlighting their stellar performance.

While Julian Araujo, on loan from Barcelona, has showcased impressive skills at Las Palmas, it’s Mika Marmol, a 22-year-old La Masia graduate, who’s drawn even more attention. His standout displays as a left-footed center-back have made him a target for Atletico Madrid, who are reportedly keen on acquiring him—a move that would also benefit Barcelona due to their sell-on clause, entitling them to 50% of the transfer fee.

However, this clause poses a hurdle as Las Palmas, understandably, is hesitant to part ways with Marmol. Although Atletico Madrid is willing to offer €15 million for the defender, Las Palmas, who would only receive half due to the clause, is holding out for a fee closer to Marmol’s €30 million release clause. But Atletico is reluctant to meet that higher price.

As it stands, unless Las Palmas lowers their demands, a transfer seems improbable. There could be interest from foreign clubs, given the high demand for young, left-footed center-backs. Notably, Liverpool has shown interest in similar profiles, such as Piero Hincapie, indicating a broader European hunt for players with Marmol’s qualities.
