Real Madrid legend, Marcelo close to joining Premier League club

Marcelo Vieira is on the verge of becoming teammate with Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, as struggling Leicester City have been linked with a stunning move for the Real Madrid legend.

The former Brazilian defender is without any club after his 15-year stay at the Bernabeu came to an emotional end this summer.

According to Spanish journalist Marti Miras, Marcelo who is now a free agent could join up with the Foxes on a one-year contract, claiming a deal to be very close.

Brendan Rodgers’ team have looked like they’ve needed more players, following their poor start to the 2022/23 Premier League season.

On Wednesday, August 31, French defender Wesley Fofana departed Leicester for Chelsea.

On deadline day the Foxes finally announced spending money on a player, for the first time this summer, when centre back Wout Faes joined from Reims, finally replacing Fofana.

Schalke midfielder Amine Harit and Atalanta’s Jeremie Boga have both been linked with Rodgers’ team, but it’s another move that is now capturing the imagination.

And now Miras is reporting that the Premier League side are ‘very close’ to signing Marcelo and are just a medical away from signing the Brazilian.
