There could not have been a more fitting farewell to a club legend like Marcelo than to win the Champions League for the fifth time in nine years in his last game for the club.

Despite not taking part on the night, there is no doubt that the Brazilian deserves the accolade as much as any player on the field.

However, even the most beautiful things must come to an end some day. Marcelo’s story with Real Madrid too reached a full-stop in Paris when the left-back bid a teary farewell to his club. Now, he looks for the next big challenge in his career.

According to reports from Fanatik, Fenerbahce are considering the signing of Marcelo in June. It is not a surprising link, given that former Real Madrid player Mesut Ozil plays for the same team.

Marcelo is the most decorated player in Real Madrid’s history. His 25 trophies with Los Blancos include five UEFA Champions League trophy, six La Liga titles and four Club World Cups amongst others.

Speaking to the media after Real Madrid’s win over Liverpool, the Brazilian expressed nothing but immense gratitude and joy for his spell at the Spanish capital.

“It is a wonderful moment in my life, I close a cycle here, in the best club in the world. Today is not a day of sadness, but a day of joy because we have once again won the best championship in the world.

“I am very proud of myself and so is my family. We have lived many magical nights together. I tell you one thing, the future of Madrid is very good with the young players. Hala Madrid.”

The full-back can continue to produce his magic in the Turkish League if the move goes through as a starter in the short term. There is good news for the Los Blancos faithful nevertheless as the Brazilian promised it was not the end of his relationship with the club.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
