It has been less than a year since Marcelo left Real Madrid, but the Spaniard could soon be back at the Valdebebas.

Indeed, according to COPE, Marcelo is on the verge of terminating his contract with current club Olympiacos, and will be helped through his recovery from an injury by Real Madrid.

Marcelo called time on his illustrious career at Real Madrid this past summer as he was not offered a contract renewal by the club following the expiry of his previous one.

Having become a free agent, the Los Blancos legend secured a move to Olympiacos, but his time at the Greek club has been disappointing, to say the least.

Marcelo has played just ten times for Olympiacos, of which he has started just two and has clocked up only 332 minutes in total. He has scored three goals for the Greek outfit, all of which have come in the cup competition.

The iconic left-back has had fitness struggles throughout his time at his new club and has not featured in over a month due to an unknown injury, of which little detail has been made public by Olympiacos.

Either way, the two parties have now decided to part ways and an official statement regarding the termination could arrive soon.

Marcelo will be returning to Madrid and as per the report, Real Madrid will be helping the 34-year-old with his recovery.

It must be remembered that Real Madrid had opened their training facilities for another former superstar in Cristiano Ronaldo after the World Cup so that he could train until he found a new club.

Marcelo could also be given a similar treatment as he recovers from his injury and plans his next move.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
