Mika Mármol has been an essential part of the Barça B squad this season due to his versatility and consistency. The defender has attracted interest from various clubs including Celtic, Getafe, and Mallorca after an impressive first professional season.

In his first professional season with Barça B, Mika Mármo has been one of the revelations of the season. The 19-year old’s good campaign has not gone unnoticed outside the Estadi Johan Cruyff and has aroused the interest of several First Division clubs, who have already asked about the situation of the left-footed center-back, who can also play on the wings. Celtic, Getafe, and Mallorca, who have just been promoted to the First Division, have already been interested in order to incorporate him in the future.

Mika, an U-20 international with Spain, was the second most used player this season by Barça B coach Javier García Pimienta, and was only surpassed by Arnau Comas. He has played a total of 2,060 minutes this season, divided into 25 games in which he has played in his two positions: 14 times as a left-back and 11 times as a center-back. In addition to his defensive work, the player, who emerged from the Jàbac de Terrassa has been participative in the attack with two goals and one assist.

In a season in which he has grown as the games went by, Mika Mármol has presented himself as an alternative for the future now that Barcelona is looking for a left-footed central defender for the first team. In the club, they understand that he must still continue to grow in the B team, but he could be an alternative for the future because he still has a long way to go. In fact, last season he renewed for three seasons, until 2023.
