Marcelo wants reunion with Ronaldo

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has reportedly highlighted his ambition to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus during the winter transfer window.

The Brazil international was said to be keen on joining his close friend at the Bianconeri during the summer but the speculation did not materialise into a potential move.

However, with the transfer window reopening in a couple of months' time, Tuttosport claim that the left-back could look to push through a winter move to the Turin giants.

Marcelo is said to have already highlighted his desire to club president Florentino Perez and it is suggested that a fee between £44m and £53m could be sufficient to lure him from the Bernabeu this winter.

Juventus are currently evaluating the future of Alex Sandro, who has turned down a new contract beyond June 2020 and they may sanction his sale first before making an approach for Marcelo.

Sandro had previously attracted interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, but it remains to be seen whether they would revive their respective pursuits in the New Year.
