The left-back leaves Gil Vicente and will cost around 500,000 euros. Employment means selling a borja or a sequeira; The Spanish defender will sign for Braga, continuing his career in Minho. Armory Players are stored again in Barcelos, and they also provide players with a permanent player generation.
Adrián Marín will reinforce the left side of Braga’s defence. The Spanish winger should be introduced next week, from Gil Vicente, as well as defensive midfielder Vitor Carvalho.
In addition to paying around €500,000 for Gil Vicente, Braga also provides a player on a permanent basis. None of them will be Francisco Mora, who will fill the vacancy left by Adrian Marin, nor Lucas Mineiro, the player who represented FC Barcelona in the 2020/21 season.
According to O JOGO, Adrián Marín has been followed for a long time by those in charge of Braga, that is, since the good performances he made in the service of Famalicão, in 2021/22, a season in which he played 33 matches, adding two assists. to the four goals he scored. At the end of that period in the Famalicense club, where he was loaned by Granada, the defender had several proposals to return to Spain, but he gave preference to Gil Vicente, choosing to continue the work he had done in the first Portuguese league and in a region of the country where he felt comfortable and fully adapted. with Minho.
After the end of the contractual link with Granada, Adrián Marín signed Gil Vicente until June 30, 2024, but his development was followed by the “souting” section of Braga and he was joined by Artur Jorge, who continued to include two full-backs, Borja and Sequeira, by Joe Mendes, that adapts to the side left.
With the signing of Adrián Marín, who should sign a contract valid for the next three or four seasons, Braga must sell one of the two left-backs Artur Jorge used last season, as both Borja and Sequeira have clubs interested in their services, especially from abroad.
Borja is 30 years old and linked to Arsenal players until 2025, after he finished the season as a starter, due to Sequeira’s injury. The Colombian left-back was about to be loaned out in the winter market, but he never gave up, showed good performance in training, combined with good professional behavior, and returned to the coach’s accounts from Braga, having been used in 23 matches.
Sequeira, 32, has had a fine campaign in 2022/23, having played 39 games in all competitions, capping off his performance with a goal and three assists. The new season is entering the end of his contract, which means that SAD Braga now has an excellent opportunity to make a good financial contribution, and also allows the player to conclude a great contract, at a time when he is 32 years old. One of them must still be sold on this transfer market.
