Real Madrid has handed Marcelo freedom to decide his future at the club as Ferland Mendy looks set to join Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this summer on a 50 million euros.
According to reports,the Frenchman could even undergo his medicals on Sunday with the France national team having a free day.
His arrival opens questions, primarily surrounding Marcelo. The Brazilian is going to play a secondary role next season and even under Zinedine Zidane, he’ll be playing the part of backup behind the incoming Mendy.
But the good thing is that club are happy to put the ball in Marcelo’s court regarding his future, and the Brazilian can decide whether he wants to stay and fight for whatever minutes come his way, or if he will want to try somewhere else.
Sergio Reguilon’s future also remains in the balance as the club awaits Marcelo’s. The youngster has expressed his desire to stay in Madrid, but the Brazilian’s decision will have an impact on that.
