(HD Video) Rolando & Marcelo – Unforgettable Duo
Leicester City are reportedly close to signing Real Madrid legend Marcelo, who is currently a free agent.
According to Spanish journalist Marti Miras, the Brazilian is set to undergo a medical at the King Power Stadium and will sign a contract that will keep him at the club until June of 2023.
The left-back has been without a club since leaving Real Madrid when his contract expired at the end of last season. Marcelo joined the La Liga giants in January of 2007 and made an astonishing 546 appearances for Los Blancos, scoring 38 times.
The Brazilian was part of the side that won the Champions League on five separate occasions while also winning six La Liga titles and four Club World Cups.
Marcelo formed a legendary partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo down Madrid’s left-hand side, as the Galacticos enjoyed incredible success throughout the past decade.
However, while the full-back has enjoyed an incredible career, he has been confined to the bench in recent times, with injuries beginning to mount up.
Marcelo made just 18 appearances across all competitions last term for Real Madrid and could struggle to cope with the intensity of the Premier League.
