In what was supposed to be a season of regular football for Marcelo Flores at Oviedo, the young talent from Arsenal experienced limited opportunities on the pitch.
Despite his initial aspirations, Flores made a mere 15 appearances across all competitions for the La Liga2 side, with just over half of those appearances as a starter.
Marcelo Flores’ Loan Spell at Oviedo Fails to Deliver Promised Game Time.
Most of his game time came during the first half of the season, leading to Oviedo’s decision not to retain him beyond the current campaign.
Reliable sources from Kery News, as relayed by La Media Titular, have confirmed that the promising midfielder will be “returning” to Arsenal following his relatively unproductive loan spell in Spain.
Flores and the Gunners will now engage in a thorough evaluation of his future prospects.
Arsenal recently demonstrated their faith in the youngster by extending his contract until 2025, signaling their willingness to explore the possibility of another loan arrangement.
However, the club has made it abundantly clear that they have no intentions of offering him for a permanent transfer.
This indicates that Flores will have to settle for another temporary move for the upcoming season.
Despite the lack of concrete information about potential suitors, it is worth noting that there have been no rumors of interested teams for the Arsenal prodigy.
However, it has been explicitly stated by Kery News that a move to Mexico is off the table for Flores. As the talented midfielder ponders his next destination, all eyes remain fixed on where he will ply his trade in the following season.
