The Mexican defender, 18, is part of the goal of the Reds’ second formation. Sports have an impact on young people’s wagering. The southpaw has been impressed with his maturity against Cruz Azul for Necaxa, a game decisive for the Lions’ promotion as he will start in the B team.
Necasa’s 18-year-old centre-back Jesús Alberto Alcantar is set to become Sporting’s back-up, but his fate could have been on the other side of the second round, as O JOGO found out , Benfica are interested in your tender and put you on a list of potential targets based on the amount of progress you show.
The Reds have a lot of respect for Alcantar, but Sporting’s project has convinced the athlete, fundamentally, because he thinks the Lions have an easier time getting the affirmation of the pros, as they pay more attention to the latest offerings from the Alcochete Academy.
The Reds are not alone, both Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan have followed the athlete, who has been considered a genius for the Nekassa youth team since childhood, with the technical ability of his left foot combined with his physical height).
The decisive point for Sporting to go ahead and sign Alcanta was his debut for Necasa’s A-team in February. As the team lost, the athlete replaced Alexis Peña in the 62nd minute and, according to local media, helped stabilize the defence and gave Necasa the necessary stability to turn the text: Milton Jimenez, 85″, Rodrigo Aguirre, at 90″+5″, scored the goal in the away win on Cruz Azul’s pitch, something that hasn’t happened since 2018 of.
Alcanta’s maturity brightened the eyes of the scouts present, who immediately set their sights on the Caborca. But even so, Necasa was concerned not to put pressure on the player to return to the youth team, which is why he didn’t play time in the first team.
Currently in Mexico, it is difficult for new talent to gain a foothold in Europe when they leave the continent at a young age, which according to O JOGO is one of Sporting’s concerns, they will have a highly professional team to accompany him to adapt to Portuguese football . He’ll start with the B team, and he knows the deal hasn’t been formalized yet, but it’s clear that Necasa intends to keep some of the center’s passing.
Marsà got used to it quickly
A similar case to Alcantar is Marsà. The centre-forward was recruited from Barcelona when his contract expired last year, and today, aged just 20, he will join Ruben Amorim’s squad. In the youth team and later in the Catalan B team, Marsà quickly came to the fore and deserves several observations before switching to the Lions. The adaptation to Sporting was relatively quick, he started 19 games as the Bs’ starter last season and was called up 12 times by Amorim until his debut for the home team against Santa Clara.
