According to Italian daily La Stampa, the disgruntled Brazilian has come to an agreement to join Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
The Brazilian full-back has reportedly agreed terms to join the Italian side on a 4 year deal this summer. Enabling him to unite with former friend and team mate Christiano Ronaldo.
Marcelo has suddenly lost his concentration at the club, which most people assume is as a result of the departure of Christiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo was a friend to Marcelo both in and off the Field.
Under Solari the Brazilian has lost his place in the team squad to Sergio Reguilón an academy graduate.
Marcelo also missed out on the latest Brazil squad, with Tite presumably not overly impressed with the veteran’s lack of playing time at the Bernabéu. And with Madrid’s season going from bad to worse this week, Marcelo has apparently decided to make the move to Juventus and has agreed to put pen to paper on a four-year contract worth 12 million euros a season, according to Italian daily La Stampa.
Marcelo met recently with Madrid general director José Ángel Sánchez to voice his concerns over his lack of playing time and asked to be allowed to leave the club in the summer. Juventus have long been linked with a move for Marcelo, whose close friendship with Ronaldo should smooth the deal to take the Brazilian to Turin.
