Víctor Manuel Casadesús Castaño (born 28 February 1985) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Andorran club Atlètic Club d'Escaldes as a forward.

Club career

Casadesús was born in Algaida, Mallorca. A product of hometown RCD Mallorca's youth ranks, he first appeared officially with the first team on 17 April 2005 in a 0–0 La Liga home draw against Valencia CF, and established himself as a useful attacking player in the following seasons.

In the second half of 2007–08 campaign, Casadesús served a six-month loan at Segunda División club Real Sociedad, scoring regularly during his stint but not being able to help the Basques ultimately promote to the top flight. He returned subsequently to the Balearic Islands but, in August 2008 was again loaned, to Gimnàstic de Tarragona also in the second tier, being again recalled after netting a career-high 13 goals.

In 2009–10, Casadesús found himself backing up in-form Aritz Aduriz, and appeared more prominently in the Copa del Rey. On 14 January 2010, he helped the team come from behind against Rayo Vallecano with a brace for an eventual 3–1 home win (4–3 aggregate), but had to be stretchered off with a broken clavicle. In the league, the side finished fifth – fourth until the last minute of the last matchday – and qualified for the UEFA Europa League, with the player contributing four goals.

Casadesús alternated between divisions one and two after leaving Mallorca in January 2014, with Levante UD, CD Tenerife and AD Alcorcón. The 34-year-old moved to down to the Segunda División B in summer 2019, signing for FC Andorra.

International career

Casadesús appeared for Spain at the 2004 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, scoring for the eventual champions in the 2–2 semi-final draw with Ukraine (penalty shootout victory after 120 minutes).
