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.

Javier Tebas may be at war with Florentino Perez over the Super League, but the La Liga president has always been a vocal supporter of Real Madrid.

Not too long ago, he spoke extensively about Real Madrid’s possible signings of Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, going as far as to state that the Frenchman might have already signed a deal with Los Blancos.

Speaking at the Football Business Summit in London recently, Tebas once again unravelled many questions about Real Madrid’s financial situations while also touching upon Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham.

On finances and Mbappe

He began by praising Los Blancos for navigating their finances with utmost caution during the crucial years of the pandemic in addition to their splendid revenue generation as revealed by Mundo Deportivo.

“Real Madrid have had a very optimal management, before, during and after the pandemic. Madrid have been earning an average of €30 million per year in the last ten years at least.”

“I don’t know what they are going to pay Mbappé, but knowing their financial situation, they are not going to have a problem paying him. I think it will be much less than what PSG pays him,” he added on the speculated arrival of Mbappe.

Speaking about how Real Madrid are able to make such massive signings while other clubs in the league continue to struggle to meet La Liga’s spending limits, the league president said,

“They have removed two large salary burdens in recent years, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale. And then they incorporated players with not-so-high investments.

“Real Madrid have then had great benefits, they achieved a significant reduction in the salaries of the players.”

Tebas further stressed the fact that Real Madrid’s financial situation was so rosy that they could invest massive amounts in squad reinforcements without facing any repercussions for the same. He insisted that it was not a bias in any way but a reward for a team that managed situations well.

“We can’t limit the one who is doing well. According to January data, Madrid could invest €700 million euros in transfers. They will not spend that at all, but the situation is so good that they could.”

Praise for Bellingham

Finally, the Spanish administrator praised Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham for his imperious form this season and went as far as to call him the best player in the world.

“Bellingham is currently the best player in the world, for his fitness and his way of playing. It is very important for us to have the best, even if you don’t always have everyone, to grow and for everything.”

“If we are all honest, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations and we hope that he will continue like this for many years,” he concluded.
