Leeds: Whites given boost in quest to sign Marcelo -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United have been boosted by the news that rumoured transfer target Marcelo will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The Lowdown: Leeds linked with audacious Marcelo move

The Whites were linked with a stunning move for the Brazilian earlier in the year, but he ended up staying put at Madrid for another year.

Marcelo has enjoyed a stunning career at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning four Champions League titles and five La Liga crowns, among other trophies.

The Latest: Brazilian set to leave Madrid

There has now been an update on the 33-year-old’s future in Spain, with El Nacionel Web reporting that this will be his last season at Madrid.

When the campaign reaches its conclusion, Marcelo will then be able to leave on a free transfer, which could potentially alert Marcelo Bielsa.

The Verdict: Box office signing

In truth, it is hard to see Marcelo ending up at Leeds, given his likely wage demands, but it would be hugely exciting he did make the move to Elland Road, with the Spanish media hailing him as a ‘genius’ in the past.

He would bring with him a winning mentality that few possess, following so much success in his career, and he still has a few years left in him at a high level.

The thought of him marauding down the left flank is a mouthwatering one, providing competition for Junior Firpo, but it would be a major surprise if it happened.

In other news, Phil Hay has revealed another Leeds player is struggling with an injury. Find out who it is here.
