Real Madrid left back and Brazil international, Marcelo has come out to say he is ready to quit Real Madrid as long as they pay him to do so.
The top defender has been constantly tipped to join with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus and recently said in an interview that he would accept an exit if that is what the Bernabeu hierarchy wished to happen.
His words, “If I am on the list of players [Madrid] want to sell, then they can pay me up and all is sorted,” Marcelo said. “I trust in myself, in my work, but if a day comes when Real Madrid do not want me, I’ll go. I will be sad, but I’ll go. But I am sure I will not be kicked out.”
“I have seen mock-ups [of me] with the Juventus jersey, and they are a spectacular team,” he said. “But I am at Real Madrid, I have a contract here.”
“The level I have been showing is difficult to always maintain,”
“I am a little below that level at the moment, but my career has been like that, some little dips, and unfortunately this season I had three injuries in two months. I went through a difficult period in my football and within the club.
“But that phase is over now, I need to play to get back to my usual form and confidence. But I feel good now, physically good, I am training strongly. I need to play to get back my confidence, but physically I am good.”
