Marcos Ariel de Paula (born 19 December 1983 in Bariri) is a Brazilian football player. He currently plays as a striker for Lumezzane on loan from Chievo.

Career[edit]

De Paula was spotted by Chievo scouts while playing for Bauru in the 2001 Torneo di Viareggio. He was loaned to A.C. Milan for the 2001–02 season. He played for Milan Primavera during the 2002 Torneo di Viareggio, where he scored 4 goals[1] Despite his good performance, the club decided not to sign him. De Paula made his professional debut in Italy, as a Chievo Verona player, during the 2002–03 season. He was later sent out on loan for nine consecutive seasons to a number of minor league (Lega Pro Prima Divisione and Lega Pro Seconda Divisione) teams; after a successful stint with Foligno in 2008–09, he finally managed to join Chievo's first team for the 2009–10 season, during which he also scored his first Serie A goals.

After only three appearances for Chievo in the 2010–11 season he joined Padova on loan until 30 June 2011.[2]
