Marcelo is a summer target for Juventus as the Italian outfit are considering a move to bring the Brazilian to the Serie A.

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo is on Juventus’ radar and the club might consider a move for the Brazilian this summer.

The 31-year-old has been linked with Juventus since Ronaldo joined the club and a re-union could yet be on the cards.

Marcelo and Ronaldo are close friends on and off the pitch and it would not be a far claim to think he would want to play alongside the Portuguese once again.

Marca h/t Football-Italia claim that the Real Madrid left-back has fallen behind Ferland Mendy in the pecking order and is open to getting more game-time.

For Juventus, the Italian champions have only one left-back option in Alex Sandro and would like to secure Marcelo as an experienced back-up option.

The Brazilian has been a loyal servant to Madrid over the years and the report claims Zidane would not get in his way if he does want a move.

Juve’s representatives had already planned talks with Marcelo’s camp in Spain but the coronavirus pandemic has put all of that on hold.

So far this season, Marcelo has feature in 11 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos, totaling 992 minutes.
