Serie A giants Juventus are interested in signing Real Madrid’s veteran full-back Marcelo, according to a report published in Tuttosport. 

As per the report, Juve believe the Brazil international might prove to be an ideal replacement for full-back João Cancelo, who is expected to join Premier League champions Manchester City for a fee in the region of €50 million. 

The Turin-based club is hopeful that they can get the deal done especially after Los Blancos recently signed Lyon left-back Ferland Mendy for a fee of €48 million. 

Juventus had been strongly linked Marcelo last summer; after the Brazilian's Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo left Madrid behind to move to Turin in a deal with €110m plus a wage of €30m per season. It had been reported that Marcelo was keen on joining the Portuguese forward in Turin yet Juventus could not afford the move for both players last summer.
