According to Spanish publication AS, Real Madrid icon Marcelo, who is set to depart as a free agent this summer, is attracting the interest of reigning Serie A champions AC Milan. Marcelo’s time at Real Madrid will come to an end this month, with the Brazilian defender bidding goodbye to the club in an emotional farewell event earlier this month. The 34-year-old leaves Real Madrid as one of the most decorated players in the history of the club, having won six La Liga titles and five UEFA Champions League crowns, along with numerous other honours.
Indeed, Marcelo has been linked with a move back to his homeland of Brazil but is keen on staying put in Europe. Turkish giants Fenerbahce have shown an interest in the veteran, while Real Valladolid are also linked with a move. Now AC Milan, too, have emerged as a possible suitor for the departing Real Madrid captain.
AC Milan have former Real Madrid ace Theo Hernandez as their first-choice left-back, with Fode Ballo-Toure as a backup. However, it seems like Stefano Pioli’s side are keen on adding Marcelo to their ranks, possibly for the experience, leadership and winning mentality that the 34-year-old star brings to the table.
