After more than 15 years in Madrid, Marcelo will leave Real this summer. Fenerbahce are reportedly close to signing the Brazilian.

Left-back Marcelo is reportedly set to join Istanbul giants Fenerbahce. This is reported by the Turkish newspaper Fanatik.

Accordingly, Fener should already agree with the 34-year-old Brazilian. After winning the Champions League final last weekend, Marcelo officially announced that he was leaving Real Madrid after more than 15 years. As his contract expires on June 30, Fenerbahce would not have to pay a fee.

Marcelo: Fenerbahce probably prevailed against Marseille

In addition to the Turks, according to Fanatik, Olympique Marseille were also interested in Marcelo. However, the 58-time international chose Fenerbahce, where he should earn four million euros a year in the future.

Marcelo moved to Madrid from hometown club Fluminense in early 2007 and played a total of 545 competitive games for the royal team. He won the Champions League five times and six Spanish championship titles with Real.
