Leeds United and Everton are both ready to make bids for Real Madrid left-back Marcelo Vieira in the January transfer window.
The 33-year-old has been injured and has only played 65 minutes this season. It has been reported that he has informed the club’s president Florentino Prese. That he will not extend his contract with the team that is about to expire next summer.
However, “Leeds United” and “Everton” are ready to offer a short-term contract to bring Marcelo to the team in the January market. With Leeds hoping to become a force in that position with Junior F. While Everton only have Lucas Digne. The senior is the only senior and needs reinforcements.
Marcelo has been with Real Madrid since 2007. He making more than 500 appearances for the team, winning five La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles, and a Supercopa de. 4 Espana, 4 UEFA Champions League x 3, UEFA Super Cup x 4 and Club World x 4.
The veteran has got his agents to sound out possible destinations for him next season. With his Madrid contract set to end next season.
The £5million-rated defender is allegedly asking for a minimum two-year contract to join either Leeds or Everton.
The Brazil star has fallen down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu. He playing only 19 matches for the LaLiga giants last term.
But Marcelo has been a stalwart in Madrid since 2007 and his glittering trophy haul includes five LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues.
