Competition career
SHB Đà Nẵng
2012
Early in the 2012 V-League season Merlo played quite well and consistently led the list of goals. Near the end of the season, he suffered injuries and had to stop playing the season, leaving the top scorer in the hands of striker Timothy Anjembe.

The 2013 season thought that he would leave Vietnam because SHB Da Nang is one of the teams in economic crisis. But SHB Da Nang still signed a 1-year contract with Merlo.

Ferro Carril Oeste
2015
In 2015, he returned to Argentina to play for his former team. Here, he scored 10 goals in 18 matches.

2016- present
He returned to compete for SHB Da Nang, became a Vietnamese citizen, and took the name Do Merlo (Last name Do is the surname of Mr. Do Quang Hien’s boss)

2020 He moves to play for Nam Dinh Football Club
