Many Everton fans have been left to fume as a transfer update emerged on Marcelo.
As per the Daily Mirror, the Goodison Park faithful, as well as Leeds United, lead the chase to sign the Real Madrid man in the summer window.
Should Everton sign Marcelo?
The Brazil international is not in the plans of new boss Carlo Ancelotti, and given that his current deal at the Bernabeu runs out in June 2022, Los Blancos will likely be looking to move him on this summer.
Marcelo would prefer a move to either England or Italy, and an asking price has been quoted at £5m.
There is no doubt that the left-back has had a decorative footballing career both at Madrid and at international level, but he is 33 years of age now, and the Merseyside club already have Lucas Digne, Niels Nkounkou and Thierry Small who play in his position.
Thus, it would be a strange move for them to try and recruit Marcelo, who is certainly past his best.

These Toffees fumed as the transfer update was shared on Twitter, with one Blues supporter even going as far as to claim that it was ‘silly’:
“Start of the madness”
“Most pointless signing ever!! Digne, Godfrey can cover there, Nkounkou and Small, no thanks even though in his prime he was superb”
“Makes no sense”
“Obviously, as a left-back is what we’re crying out for. Silly season is truly upon us”
