Platense loan Julián Marcioni

Platense loan Julián Marcioni

The 23-year-old forward has joined Las Calamares until December 2022

Newell’s Old Boys attacker Julián Marcioni has left the club to join Platense on an 18-month loan. A fee was not charged to the newly-promoted Primera División side for the loan. Marcioni will play under new Platense manager Leonardo Madelón after Newell’s legend Juan Manuel Llop resigned in May.

After impressing on loan at Atlanta in the Primera Nacional, Marcioni was recalled to Newell’s in 2021 but was limited to just 6 appearances so far this year, 4 in the Copa de la Liga and 2 in the Copa Sudamericana with no goals or assists to his name.

The club released a short statement on Saturday conforming the loan, adding that Platense had no future option to purchase Marcioni.

Best of luck, Julián!
