Mauricio Alves Peruchi is a professional football player from Brazil who plays as a striker. Playing at the youth team at Fluminense, Alves was quickly identified as one of the more promising talents to come out of the club. Villareal CF identified this young talent and brought him into the youth squad at Villareal. After playing himself into the reckoning for the first team, Mauricio found himself incapable of playing with the big guns.

He was sent back to Fluminense where he played 20 games over the entire 2007 season. In 2009, after recovering from a serious injury that kept him out for the entire 2008 season, Mauricio moved back to Spain and made his first team debut for Villareal C, in the Third division of Spanish Football. 26 games and 4 goals later, he was moved up to the B-team at Villareal. After just three games, the Spanish outfit decided to that Mauricio still needed more first-team games at a high level, something he wouldn’t get with the Spanish outfit.

He was sent back to Brazil, on loan, to Avai Futebol Clube, where he’s 7 games and scored a solitary goal on his way to trying to earn a place in the Villareal first team.
