Juventus are reportedly set to rekindle their interest in Real Madrid defender Marcelo once the transfer window reopens.

Juve were keen on signing the veteran Brazil international last summer only to be knocked back by the Liga giants.

Marcelo though has had to deal with reduced game time this season following the arrival of Ferland Mendy from Lyon.

It seems like the 33-year-old’s time at Santiago Bernabéu could be up with Marca saying the representatives of the Bianconeri will travel to Madrid once normal service resumes.

Maurizio Sarri is keen to bolster his back line in time for next season and believes that Marcelo would be keen on coming to Turin.

The South American has a fantastic relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo after their time in Spain together, and Juve are hoping that they can use their Ballon d’Or winner to persuade Marcelo to leave his home of a decade.
