Iván José Marcone (born 3 June 1990) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Cruz Azul as a central midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Sarandí, Marcone was an Arsenal de Sarandí youth graduate. He made his professional debut on 18 October 2008, coming on as a second half substitute in a 3-3 home draw against Vélez Sársfield for the Primera División championship.[1]

Marcone scored his first goal on 17 October 2009, netting the first in a 1-1 home draw against Banfield.[2] He was an important midfield unit in the club's 2012 Clausura winning campaign, being an ever-present figure.

Marcone was later linked to La Liga outfit Celta de Vigo and Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire, but both offers were rejected by Arsenal.[3] In 2013, he was also strongly linked to Independiente, but nothing came of it.[4]

On 9 January 2015 Marcone joined Getafe CF on loan until June, with a buyout clause.[5][6] However, the deal was declared void later in the month.

Marcone played as a holding midfielder as Lanus reached the final of the Copa Sudamerica in 2017. He was linked to a move to La Liga side UD Las Palmas afterwards [7] as well as Club Tijuana in Mexico and Atletico Nacional in Columbia.[8]

In the summer of 2018 Marcone officially became a Cruz Azul player in Liga MX[9][10]

Playing style[edit]

Marcone typically shields the back four. A ball winner but also praised for his passing, Marcone often provides the first pass in an attack and his calmness under pressure allows his side to play the ball out from the back.

International Career[edit]

Marcone was called up to the Argentine national football team squad in March 2017.[11]
