FC Barcelona have taken up the option to keep Marlon Santos at FC Barcelona for the next three seasons.

The 21 year old defender is a key figure in Gerard López’s Barça B squad in his first season at the Club. Marlon Santos, born in Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, has made 24 appearances in the B team this season, 22 in the starting line up.
