Juventus is set to hold talks with Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes for a possible move for a possible move for Real Madrid defender Marcelo.
The Brazilian defender is experiencing a dip in form of late due to his lack of defensive consciousness and has lead to criticism from the media and the Bernabeu fans.
Marcelo contract expires in 2022 but he has been heavily linked with a move out of Real Madrid and he has been tipped to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Allianz Stadium in Turin.
Ronaldo welcome such move by Juventus hierarchy, the Portuguese forward still maintain a healthy relationship with the defender and he is one of those encouraging Marcelo to secure the move come next summer.
Marcelo is also gradually losing his place to an in-form Sergio Reguilon and has only played 13 out of 24 LaLiga games so far this season.

A few days ago, reports emerged that the defender has also met with Real Madrid managing director José Ángel Sánchez to have a crisis talk, which has propelled the rumour of a possible exit from the club.
The report in Tuttosport now reports that Juventus is scheduled to meet Jorge Mendes to discuss a potential move for the defender.
The report claims that while Real Madrid is looking for a swap deal for the Bianconeri's left-back Alex Sandro, Juventus would rather make some decent money off of the defender.
The rumour of Marcelo for Sandro has been in the news for some time now but the circumstances in the present time could see the swap come to reality.
