After not being considered by Independiente's coach Antonio Mohamed in July 2011 Mancuello was loaned to Club Atlético Belgrano for one year.[1] On 26 October he scored his first and only goal in a 1–0 victory against Tigre.[2] In January 2012 Mancuello suffered an injury in a match of the Copa Argentina which kept him out of the fields for several weeks when he was being a key player of his team.[3]

Flamengo[edit]

2016 season[edit]

On January 6, 2016 Mancuello was signed by Brazilian club Flamengo for a fee of R$12 million.[4] On the first half of the season Mancuello didn't perform as expected due to some injuries, playing all of his 12 matches as a starter and scoring 3 goals. As the 2016 Série A started he lost his status of starter, but established himself as of the most important substitutes of the team.

On 6 August 2016 Mancuello scored his first Série A goal in a 1-0 win against Atlético Paranaense in Kléber Andrade Stadium, the game-winner goal was scored in a beautiful back heel flick.[5] On 28 August 2016, against Chapecoense, he substituted Éverton on the 62nd minute and scored his second Série A in the injury time, Flamengo won the match 3-1 at Arena Condá.[6] His third Série A goal was, once again, a game-winner, this time against Cruzeiro in a beautiful placed shot in the 87th minute.[7] In his first season at Flamengo, Mancuello made 36 appearances and scored five goals in all competitions.

International career[edit]

On March 20, 2015 Mancuello was called up by Argentine coach Gerardo Martino for the friendly matches against El Salvador on March 28 and Ecuador on March 31, 2015.[8] He made his debut against El Salvador at Fedex Field, replacing Ángel Di María in the second half and scoring a debut goal from a free kick at the end of the match.[9][10] In May, he was selected for the preliminary squad for the 2015 Copa América[11] but he wasn't considered for the definitive draft.[12]
