Real Madrid defender Marcelo could be the next in line to join Serie A giants Juventus next season following the capture of former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo last summer

According to reports in Spain, Marcelo will wrap up a deal with the Old Lady if they make an offer in the winter transfer window

And the Brazilian’s wife Clarice Alves has fuelled transfer speculations about his husband’s move to Turin.

“Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid farewell was bad for us”, she said (as reported by Calciomercato).

Karanka says Mourinho would have been perfect for a Madrid return

The former Real Madrid assistant manager backed Jose Mourinho, saying he would have been just as good as Zinedine Zidane is.

“We used to spend a lot of time together. I know his mum very well and I know Georgina too. She is marvellous.

“My son is a very close friend with Junior, the son of Cristiano Ronaldo. His farewell from Madrid left us empty”.

It’s reported that Madrid are not willing to let the Brazilian go for anything less than € 50 million.

In addition to that, the Old Lady may only sign Marcelo if Alex Sandro is sold in the summer.
