Botafogo ‘leading the race to sign Real Madrid’s Marcelo’

Botafogo ‘leading the race to sign Real Madrid’s Marcelo’

Botafogo are reportedly at the head of the queue to sign Real Madrid‘s Marcelo on a free transfer.

The veteran left-back will be out of contract at the Bernabeu next June and is unlikely to pen an extension, with the Brazilian preparing to end his 15-year spell with the club.

According to Torcedores, Botagogo are currently leading the race for the 33-year-old and are confident of securing his signature at the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

The report, though, claims that Marcelo’s wage demands are currently an issue, so the defender would need to accept a reduction in salary to make the move.

Fluminense are also said to be exploring the possibility of re-signing the 58-time Brazil international next year.

Marcelo came through the youth system at the Brazilian outfit before representing their first team on 30 occasions ahead of a move to Real Madrid in January 2007.
