Marcelo to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus

Real Madrid vice-captain, has been linked with a summer move to Juventus, just a day after former Los Blancos team-mate, Cristiano Ronaldo swapped the Spanish capital for Turin in a sensational 105-million-euro switch.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Marcelo could follow Ronaldo to Juve.

The report claimed that Marcelo’s representative is in Turin and are working on the possibilities for the left-back to join the Seria A champions.

It also claimed that Juve have put a stalemate with talks over a new contract for their regular left-back, Alex Sandro and could look to Marcelo as an alternative.

Marcelo has already paid tribute to Ronaldo following the Portuguese’s transfer move to Juventus this summer.

The Brazilian international wrote on his Twitter page, “Who would’ve thought, right Cris? It’s now time to say good-bye…I swear to you that I never imagined this day would come, but nothing in life lasts forever and I hope you get to be very happy in your new adventure.

“We spent almost 10 years together, 10 years of happiness, good football, victories, defeats and wonderful times. I learned a lot from you, your dedication is the strangest thing I ever saw in an athlete.

“I wish all the best for you and your family!

“I will miss our pre-game talks when you guessed the score correctly and calmed us ahead of the Finals with your experience and support!

“I’m proud of having played with you but not because you are the best player but because of the kind of person you are.

“When I retire I will sit in a bar to drink a beer and I will tell our stories and show our pictures. “Yours sincerely, #M12.”
