Marcelo’s great journey through Real Madrid. The Brazilian, who became the team’s undisputed idol, did not renew his contract and left the team at the end of the season holding the position of active player with more titles for the club.

The athlete was losing more and more space in a club La Liga. In the past three seasons, there have only been 60 games, with the left-back, most of the time, being overtaken by France’s Mendy.

Marcelo, then, is wanted by several teams. And, despite the polls conducted by some clubs in Brazil, the team has already made it clear that, for the time being, it prioritizes staying in European football, and that it can still play in the Champions League.

Marcelo’s name is gaining traction in Marseille

Thus, after speculation about Fenerbahce’s interest, there are now rumors of a possible move to Olympique de Marseille, with coach Jorge Sampaoli’s approval.

According to the Turkish website Fanatic, the player was already going to choose the French club to play, and if all went well, it would be announced in the coming days. The French club also includes three other Brazilians, defender Luan Perez, midfielder Gerson and striker Luis Henrique.
