Real Madrid Transfer Rumour: Cristiano Ronaldo pushing Juventus to sign Marcelo

Without a doubt, the signing of the summer transfer window so far has to be the one of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus from Real Madrid for a whopping 120 million euros. It would have been very difficult for Cristiano to leave the club for which he has played for nine long years and his teammates in the Spanish capital.

Without a doubt, Ronaldo's close friend at Real Madrid is Brazilian left-back Marcelo as he shares a fantastic relationship with him on and off the field. It will be very difficult for a full-back to have the kind of coordination Cristiano had with Marcelo at Real Madrid.

Ever since moving to Turin, Cristiano has been pushing for a move to land Marcelo at Juventus. According to Don Balon, the Brazilian is ready to try a new adventure in Italy and he would reportedly say yes to Juventus straight away. However, the negotiations are not simple, but the report claims that Juve will make a last-gasp attempt for Marcelo.

There were several other reports which suggest that Juventus' left-back Alex Sandro, who was in talks with Manchester United and Chelsea for a possible move before the transfer window in England came to an end, could find himself out of the Italian champions for the upcoming season as he is close sign a deal with French side Paris Saint-Germain.


Sandro leaving the club and joining PSG all but indicates that Juventus will be in need of a left-back and Marcelo will be the first priority for theOld Lady, especially after the request of Cristiano. Marcelo, who is Real Madrid's vice-captain, has been named in the Real squad for the UEFA Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid in Estonia and his future at the club will be clear when he comes back to the Madrid capital after the completion of the match. Marcelo, who joined Los Blancos in 2007, is the longest serving foreign player in the illustrious history of Real Madrid.
