Marcelo not leaving Real Madrid, new coach Ancelotti has plans for him

Marcelo not leaving Real Madrid, new coach Ancelotti has plans for him. Real Madrid have never been intentioned to sell Marcelo. He’s staying and he’s considered a key player for Ancelotti’s team, the board never had any doubt. #RealMadrid #Marcelo. Marcelo is gonna be the captain next season and he’s happy to stay.

Marcelo will remain a Real Madrid player next season bar an unexpected turn of events according to Marca. It will be the final year of his contract, set to expire in 2022, and it’s expected the Brazilian will be able to see it out despite the constant rumour of an exit.

Carlo Ancelotti, the coach who’s given Marcelo the most games in one season with 53 in 2014/15, has had a big say in the decision to retain his services. Marcelo is no longer the first-choice left-back; Ferland Mendy and, recently, Miguel Gutierrez are ahead of him in the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The carioca has been an immensely important part of the success Madrid have achieved over the past decade, especially in the remarkable run of four Champions League titles in five years. Currently, second captain, he could take the armband for real if Sergio Ramos, as is suspected, leaves Los Blancos after sixteen years of service this summer. Marcelo himself joined from Fluminense the year after Ramos.
