Marcelo signs Madrid deal

The move sees Marcelo tied down to the Bernabeu club until 2020.

A statement from Real Madrid read: “Real Madrid announces it has extended the contract of Marcelo until June 30, 2020, for the next five seasons.”

The 27-year-old joined Real from Brazilian club Fluminense in January 2007 and is the third longest serving player at the club, behind Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos.

The Brazil international has made 320 appearances for Real in his eight-and-a-half years in Spain.
