Marcelo ‘wants to stay at Madrid, not to move to Juve’

Tuttosport claims Cristiano Ronaldo has called Marcelo to join him at Juventus, but another report argues the left-back wants to stay at Real Madrid.

According to the Turin-based newspaper, Ronaldo is ‘ready’ to extend another invitation to Marcelo, having campaigned for the Brazilian’s arrival last year.

Madrid, for their part, are about to conclude a deal for Olympique Lyonnais and France defender Ferland Mendy.

However, ESPN has since countered that the 31-year-old plans on remaining at the Santiago Bernabeu and fighting for his place.
