Tuttosport has published its latest story this Tuesday linking Real Madrid’s Marcelo with a move Juventus.
According to the Italian newspaper, Juventus are determined to sign the Brazilian defender. But knowing that Madrid would be against letting him go, the Serie A club would be willing to offer a swap deal involving Marcelo’s compatriot Alex Sandro, who has apparently fallen out of favour with coach Massimiliano Allegri. A straight swap of the two Brazilians would mean Marcelo’s arrival in Turin would cost Juventus nothing.
One of the biggest proponents of Marcelo's move to Italy has been former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, who, after joining Juventus for 117 million euros in July, has highly recommended signing the Brazilian full-back to Juve's management.
As they continue to probe the Spanish transfer market for options for next season, Juventus also reportedly have their eyes on Valencia’s José Luis Gayà and Carlos Soler, although that could prove to be a difficult operation for the Italian club.
