Blow for Leeds United and Everton

Now, Marca are a Madrid-based publication and are close to the Spanish club.

Everton and Leeds may want the five-time La Liga champions, but based on this report, it does appear that they will fail in their quest.

Marcelo is 33 and is unlikely to play regularly next season.

However, the veteran left-back is a big figure in the dressing room.

New Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti could rely on him in big games, as the Italian plans to win the La Liga and the Champions League next season.
