To be the most decorated player in Real Madrid’s history is no mean feat. With 24 trophies won at the club, Marcelo holds that title and deservedly so.
Over the past 15 years, the Brazilian grew into one of the most dependable faces in the famous white colours. As managers came and went, he remained one of the few constants in the team and created a legacy at the club.
However, Los Blancos decided against renewing his contract at the end of last season. The Champions League final was Marcelo’s last game for the club of his dreams and he is now set to turn a fresh leaf in his book.
According to reports from MARCA, the Brazilian wants to organize a farewell party for all his coaches, teammates, board members, singers, actors, friends, and even media acquaintances.
The program is scheduled to take place at the Zuma Madrid restaurant on Sunday from 8:30 PM.
Several teammates including Vinicius Jr, Dani Ceballos, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, and Nacho Fernandez are among the confirmed attendees. Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Carlos are expected to attend the function too.
Marcelo has made no official announcement about the next phase of his career. It is speculated that he could join Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig, but Marseille and clubs in Qatar have also been linked with his signature.
Last season, the 34-year-old played only 12 league games for Los Blancos and started just five. In that duration, he provided two assists and failed to find the back of the net.
€85 million-rated Serie A winger ‘dreams’ of playing for Real Madrid, claims father:
Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of playing for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the winger’s father has revealed following the UEFA Champions League clash between the two teams last night.
Kvaratskhelia, 22, exploded upon arriving at Napoli last year, leading them to the Serie A title on the back of his explosive performances.
The Georgian winger has been impressing in the ongoing campaign as well, although he failed to score or assist in either of Napoli’s meetings with Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages.
Kvaratskhelia has previously spoken about how he has always been a lifelong supporter of Real Madrid and grew up idolising some of the club’s legends like Cristiano Ronaldo and Guti, among others.
Now, the 22-year-old winger’s father has revealed that his son has always dreamt of and continues to dream of playing for Real Madrid.
As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Kvaratskhelia’s father said: “Khvicha always dreamed and still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I am sure about it.”
Talking about the fact that the winger got to play against Real Madrid, Kvaratskhelia’s father added: “For Khvicha, playing vs Real Madrid was special. In my family, everyone is a Real Madrid supporter, except me.”
Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements, but they are looking for a centre-forward next summer and have Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as their main targets.
As for Kvaratskhelia, whose market value stands at €85 million, it seems quite apparent that he harbours dreams of playing for Real Madrid. But it remains to be seen if there is some interest from Los Blancos in signing the winger.
