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.

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
