Marcelo links to Juventus will not go away

Marcelo links to Juventus will not go away

He said: "Usually players of my age go to Qatar or China, with all due respect, so coming to such an important and outstanding club at this point of my career makes me very happy".

He, however, believes the five-time Ballon d'Or victor can take the Old Lady to the next level in their pursuit of European glory. And now according to Italian publications Tuttosport, the Brazilian left-back is keen on a move to Allianz Stadium. But things could be about to get even better for Juventus fans, with Marcelo being heavily linked with a switch.

Madrid have been getting used to life without Ronaldo, who joined Juventus earlier in the summer, during the International Champions Cup (ICC) campaign in the United States.

Ronaldo's arrival in Italy will see Serie A become one of the most popular leagues in the world.


However Juve's closest recent challengers - Napoli and Roma - have sold important players this summer, and Napoli has to adapt to new coach Carlo Ancelotti following talismanic Maurizio Sarri's departure and subsequent move to Chelsea.

Ronaldo's 100 million euro ($117 million) signing, as well as boosting Juve's global profile, was created to help Massimiliano Allegri's side go one step further after losing two Champions League finals in four years.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Juventus are interested in signing Real Madrid and Brazil worldwide Marcelo Vieira this summer.

ESPN has snatched the rights to broadcast Serie A in the United States from BeIN Sports (although the league has not said how much the network will pay) and World Cup Golden Ball victor Luka Modric is also pondering a move to join former teammate Ronaldo in Italy - at Juve's arch-rivals Inter Milan.
