With biggest transfer of the summer already sealed and confirmed, Serie A champions Juventus have not finished their market activities just yet.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to arrive in Turin on Sunday and have his official presentation at the new club on Monday but Juventus will, in the meantime, step up their efforts to bring his dear friend from Real Madrid, Marcelo.
Bianconeri are looking for a replacement for wantaway defender Alex Sandro and Mediaset Premium reports that Marcelo is top of their wish list.
The Brazilian left-back is one of the best players in his position and his close relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo is hoped to play a part in any possible transfer to Turin. Marcelo is under contract until 2022 and would not come cheap.
Serie A heavyweights are also monitoring Bayern Munich’s Juan Bernat as an alternative, it is being reported in the Italian press.
The 25-year-old Spaniard is contracted to Bundesliga champions under 2019 and would command a €15 million transfer fee.
