Marcos Leonardo is one of the emerging young talents in the Brazilian National Championship. He grew up from the Santos youth academy and started playing for the first team in 2020.
Leonardo plays as a center forward. The 20-year-old player possesses impressive positioning and finishing ability. This season, Leonardo has scored 21 goals and 4 goals in all competitions.
With that excellent performance, the 20-year-old striker received attention from many big teams.
Besides Man Utd, recently according to sources from UOL, Newcastle United has also begun to make moves to approach Leonardo. The home team at St James’ Park needs to upgrade the quality of their strikers to compete for titles in all competitions.
Therefore, they decided to open negotiations with Santos about the possibility of recruiting Leonardo. It is known that the Brazilian representative is ready to release him in January if he receives an offer of about 25 million pounds.
However, as mentioned, Newcastle is not the only club that wants to own this name.
