Mġarr United are showing interest in signing Brazilian wing back Marcelo Dias, from Floriana FC.
The Challenge League side are looking to build a competitive squad ahead of their participation in the second-tier of Maltese football and have targeted the Brazilian, who has one year left on his contract.
Sources have told the Times of Malta that Mġarr United have made a request to sign the player and it is understood that Floriana are open to let the player leave should an agreement will be reached between both parties.
Floriana’s decision to let the Brazilian go forms part of their current strategy of trying to rejuvenate their squad by bringing in young players with a new motivation.
Dias has been on the books of Floriana FC for a year and a half after he joined the Greens from Senglea Athletic in January 2020.
The veteran defender has been in Malta for almost ten years now since joining Hibernians in 2011 and spent eight years with the Paolites before moving to Senglea Athletic in 2019.
