Two Madrid defenders left the club in the previous offseason and there may be a third one to follow suit soon. According to Eduardo Inda, a journalist on El Chiringuito, Carlo Ancelotti plans to part ways with Marcelo. For him, the Brazilian full-back simply does not have the level to perform at clubs such as Real Madrid.
“Real Madrid don’t want Marcelo because (Ferland) Mendy and Miguel Gutiérrez got past them. The latter has great potential and is ambitious. And there is also David Alaba who can play in this position. Marcelo therefore fell in the hierarchy. (Carlo) Ancelotti has already told him that he was not counting on him and the club are studying the possibility of transferring him during the winter transfer window, ”said the Iberian columnist.
After the departure of Sergio Ramos, Marcelo became the oldest member of the Merengue squad. He has the experience which pleads in his favor (529 games played), but at 33 years old his performances have seriously declined in recent months. This season, he has only appeared in one of Spain’s four runners-up matches. Seeing him leave the Bernabeu in the near future would therefore only be a half-surprise.
