Marcelo a ‘lonely’ man at the Santiago Bernabeu

Marcelo a ‘lonely’ man at the Santiago Bernabeu

Marcelo has discussed his future at Real Madrid and refused to rule out a move to Italian side Juventus.

The Brazilian defender has seen playing time hard to come by at the Santiago Bernabeu over the last few weeks, being replaced by youngster Sergio Reguilon.

Marcelo has won four Champions League and four La Liga titles during his career with Madrid, which has also seen him make 471 appearances in all competitions.

With the 30-year-old’s exemption from the first eleven, multiple reports have claimed that Italian side Juventus are keen on bringing him to the Serie A this summer and that he could be reunited with former Los Blancos forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Those links continue to be heard, leading the full-back to be quizzed on his future and current time at Los Blancos.

“Leaving Madrid has never crossed my mind, I trust myself more than any other person and there is no reason to leave,” he told Esporte Interativo.

“If that happens, they can pay me and everything will be fixed. I trust in myself, in my work, but if the day comes when Madrid do not want me, I’m going.

“I’ll be sad, but I’ll go, though I’m sure that I’m not going to be offloaded.”
