Delhi Dynamos made their first foreign signing for the second edition of the Indian Super League (ISL) by retaining 21-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder, Gustavo Marmentini dos Santos.
Marmentini was last seen in action for Brazilian Serie A club, Atletico PR for whom he turned out in the local Paranaense state league, where they finished a disappointing ninth out of twelve teams, but managed to stay up after finishing top of the relegation round between the bottom four teams.
Having made seven appearances for the losing cause, Marmentini did not feature in the premier division of Brazilian football, the Serie A, and was last seen in action on the 3rd of May, 2015.
His compatriots, Bruno Pelissari and Romeo Fernandes have also been retained by Chennaiyin FC and FC Goa respectively.
While both Pelissari and Marmentini are on loan at their respective ISL clubs, Romeo has left Atletico PR by mutual consent.
"I am excited to be a part of Delhi Dynamos again. I had some very fond memories last season. The fans are really special to me and I look forward to entertaining them," said the Brazilian attacker who scored five goals in the inaugural season, where the Dynamos failed to make the semi-finals.
