Real Madrid’s vice captain Marcelo has been linked with a summer move to Juventus, just a day after former Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo swapped the Spanish capital for Turin in a sensational 105-million-euro switch.
As Sports claims the Brazilian dropped a hint about a possible Juventus switch when he followed Juventus on Instagram and liked the club’s official announcement of his former Real Madrid teammate and close friend Cristiano Ronaldo.
Also, reports have it that Serie A giants Juventus are keen on signing the Brazilian in an attempt to replace Alex Sandro.
Marcelo who paid tribute to Ronaldo following the Portuguese’s transfer move to Juventus this summer wrote on his Twitter page:
“Who would’ve thought, right Cris? It’s now time to say good-bye…I swear to you that I never imagined this day would come, but nothing in life lasts forever and I hope you get to be very happy in your new adventure.
“We spent almost 10 years together, 10 years of happiness, good football, victories, defeats and wonderful times. I learned a lot from you, your dedication is the strangest thing I ever saw in an athlete.
“I wish all the best for you and your family!
“I will miss our pre-game talks when you guessed the score correctly and calmed us ahead of the Finals with your experience and support!
“I’m proud of having played with you but not because you are the best player but because of the kind of person you are.
“When I retire I will sit in a bar to drink a beer and I will tell our stories and show our pictures. “Yours sincerely, #M12.”
Can Marcelo’s failure to say an ‘actual’ goodbye to Cristiano on social media be because their paths are about to cross once more?
