Juventus are giving genuine thought to a bid for Real Madrid and Brazil full-back Marcelo, assure Sportitalia.

The Bianconeri already shook up the summer by signing Cristiano Ronaldo for €112m and could reunite him with another Merengues player in Turin.

There have been reports about the Marcelo approach before, but Sportitalia insist there will be more proposals in future.

However, it would depend on Alex Sandro leaving and he has offers from Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Chelsea.

It’d be another very expensive move for Juventus, as Real Madrid want €50m for Marcelo and he currently earns €11m per year, making him one of the highest-paid players at the Bernabeu.

He turned 30 in May and is under contract until June 2022.
