Juventus and Inter Milan plan on making an attempt to sign a Real Madrid captain next summer transfer window. The player in question is Marcelo Vieira.

Marcelo Vieira was once considered the best left-back in the world and the Brazilian defender played a key role in the historic European three-peat of Real Madrid. But gone are the days when Marcelo was an indispensable member of Real’s starting eleven.

Currently the Brazilian is Zidane’s second choice after Ferland Mendy who has cemented a permanent spot into the starting eleven due to his defensive prowe/s that the Brazilian fails to offer. In fact, Marcelo had first fallen down the pecking order in the 2018/19 season when Santiago Solari was in charge of the squad. The former Madrid manager preferred starting an inexperienced Sergio Reguilon over the four-time UEFA Champions League-winning defender.

Fast forward to today, Marcelo faces the same situation. In fact, the player has even been considered as a liability when on the field due to his lack of defensive awareness during transitions and is often caught out of position. Many reports suggest that Real have now considered to part ways with the Brazilian next summer despite Marcelo being on contract until 2022.

A report from Todo Fichajes reports that Juventus and Inter Milan have shown a great deal in signing the 32-year-old left-back. The Bianconeri are on the lookout for a backup defender as Alex Sandro continues to struggle with injury woes and former Real Madrid right-back Danilo has been used as a deputy left-back.

Both Inter and Juventus are keen on acquiring the services of Marcelo as Real Madrid are open to the idea of parting ways with the player next summer. After 13 seasons at Real is it finally time for Marcelo to move on in search of pastures elsewhere? or should the club honour his contract and keep him until 2022?
