Juve set to ‘try again’ for Marcelo this summer

Juventus will reportedly ‘try again’ for Real Madrid left-back Marcelo this summer after trying to bring him in a year ago.

According to Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, Juve initially sought to sign Marcelo last summer, while the Brazilian has maintained his ‘desire’ to leave Madrid.

Pedulla explains the defender has been a ‘serious target’ for some time and that the Bianconeri ‘intend’ to go back in for him.

The 30-year-old has made over 450 appearances for Los Blancos since arriving from Fluminense in 2007 and won four Champions Leagues with Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, he has fallen behind youth product Sergio Regulion in pecking order and would have held talks about his future with Madrid aide Jose Angel Sanchez a few days ago.

It comes after Nicolas Tagliafico’s agent claimed the Spaniards were pursuing the Ajax full-back because Marcelo ‘will join Juventus’.
