Cristiano continues to convince Marcelo to join him at Juventus

20 Jan 2019

Cristiano has not given up trying to lure Marcelo to Juventus. Since the Portuguese landed in Turin last summer, one of his obsessions is to bring the 30-year-old left-back to the club. They maintain a great friendship and their communication is fluid, speaking regularly and during these chats Cristiano is making a big effort to convince the Brazilian to go to Juventus, As has learned.

However, recent events could put doubts in Marcelo’s mind. Solari left him out of his starting eleven in the last two games without a single minute played after he was criticized for his defensive lapses. He was even called out by the home fans during Real Sociedad’s win at the Bernabéu when he was nowhere to be seen for the first goal. 

The Serie A side is well covered at left-back and they renewed Alex Sandro until 2023 in December. De Sciglio can also play there but they want a top-level player who can improve their squad depth even further.

An potential deal, however, would not be simple. Despite his poor performances this season, Marcelo remains an important player for Real Madrid. At the club they are not interested in sitting down and listening to offers and so the player himself would have to express a desire to leave.
