How Marcelo could be on his way to Italy if Real Madrid land Liverpool target

If Sevilla's Albert Moreno can force through his dream move to Real Madrid, Brazilian full-back Marcelo might be surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.

The Brazilian only recently helped Real Madrid defeat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final, but it could turn out to be his last in the white of Madrid.

According to Gazzetta dello sportJuventus have made the Selecao full-back their number one summer transfer target. 

Conte is keen to add experience and quality to his defensive options and the Madrid defender would offer both. 

Even if Marcelo were to stay he would face a battle with Fabio Coentrao for the left-back position as Carlo Ancelotti is a known admirer of the Portuguese defender.

Marcelo and his representatives feel he is too good a player to play second fiddle to Moreno or Coentrao but any proposed deal will probably be sorted out after the Word Cup as the defender is currently on international duty with the Brazil national team.

With Moreno seemingly destined to leave Sevilla, Liverpool and Real Madrid have stepped up their efforts to sign him.

Sevilla have vowed not to stand in Alberto Moreno's way if he wants to leave the Europa League champions, but the Spanish full-back will not be allowed to leave on the cheap. Liverpool have formalised their interest in the left-back with an offer worth £16.2m (€20m) reports The Guardian.

However, Moreno has made it clear he wants a move to Real Madrid and if the Spaniard gets his way, and Real Madrid are willing to let Marcelo leave, Juventus manager Antonio Conte will welcome him with open arms.
