Real Madrid star Marcelo has reportedly informed the leadership that wants to part ways with the club at the end of the season
One of the symbols of Real Madrid’s most successful generation in their recent history seems poised to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu after 12 years of service.
Although he has recently announced his desire to remain in the Spanish capital, a number of factors have influenced Marcelo to reverse his decision.
The Brazilian has lost his place in the starting line-up to the 22-year-old Sergio Regulion, and his relationship with the manager Santiago Solari is rotting day by day.
According to the Spanish news outlet, AS, the left-back has already met Los Blancos’ management twice in the past seven days to discuss the terms of his summer’s departure.
In case the 30-year-old defender and La Liga giants fail to straighten things out by the end of the season, the former Fluminense man has already picked out his next destination.
Marcelo’s greatest desire is to reunite with his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo who is currently on the books at Juventus.
The Bianconeri would be more than glad to embrace one of the best left-backs in the past ten years, but Real Madrid’s €70m asking price could be a stumbling block.
