He previously spent 12 years in Chelsea’s Academy from the age of seven and was part of the Blues squad that won the Under-18 Premier League southern division and national title, FA Youth Cup and inaugural Under-18 Premier League Cup in 2017/18, beating us in the final of the latter competition.
Born in London, Marcel is a former student at Chelsea Academy school and was capped by England at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 levels, before featuring for Portugal Under-18s thanks to his dual nationality.
