Real Madrid star Marcelo ‘tempted’ by Juventus and Inter

Juventus and Inter have expressed interest in Real Madrid left-back Marcelo in recent days, AS reports.

Both clubs contacted Marcelo’s entourage to find out if they would be willing to enter negotiations.

And unlike in the past, the 32-year-old is ‘tempted’ by the two Italian giants and would listen to offers.

Despite inconsistent form over the past two years, Marcelo remains highly valued and is still rated at €16m by Transfermarkt.

The problem for both Juve and Inter is his annual salary of around €8m net – too much for either club.

As things stand he would have to take a pay cut in order to facilitate a move to Serie A.

Zinedine Zidane is now favouring Ferland Mendy in big games and Marcelo could see his game time reduced going forward.

Inter have a long-standing interest in Marcelo while he would be reunited with his friend Cristiano Ronaldo at Juve.

Brazil international Marcelo has made 509 appearances for Madrid in his thirteen and a half seasons at the club.
