Juventus are keen to sign Real Madrid left-back Marcelo during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Juventus are reportedly keen to complete a summer move for Real Madrid defender Marcelo.

The Brazil international has made over 500 appearances for Madrid since arriving in 2007, winning four La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at the Bernabeu.

The 31-year-old has been restricted to just 11 La Liga outings this term, though, partly down to injury but also due to the form of Ferland Mendy, who has become Zinedine Zidane's preferred option at left-back.

According to Marca, the Old Lady are determined to bring a new left-sided full-back to Turin this summer and have identified Marcelo as the ideal player to boost their squad next season.

The South American, who is thought to be close friends with former teammate and now-Juve attacker Cristiano Ronaldo, still has more than two years left to run on his contract in the Spanish capital.

Alex Sandro is Juve's current first-choice left-back, featuring on 31 occasions for Maurizio Sarri's side in all competitions during the 2019-20 campaign.
