Marcelo on Juventus list

Juventus have identified Real Madrid left-back Marcelo as a summer transfer target, according to reports.

Marca cite claims by Tuttosport that Juve Coach Antonio Conte wants the Brazil international for next season.

Madrid President Florentino Perez is said to be against the idea, however, as he wants to keep the Champions League-winning team together.

And despite the presence of Fabio Coentrao, Marcelo’s rival for the left-back spot, it’s felt at Santiago Bernabeu that the season can be gruelling and competition is important.

If Juventus are unsuccessful in getting Marcelo out of Madrid, they could turn their attention to Barcelona’s Adriano, the report adds.
