For the first time, Inter Miami has surfaced as a potential transfer destination for Real Madrid captain Marcelo. The MLS club has already made a contract offer for the Brazilian. Marcelo, a Real Madrid defender who is set to become a free agent in the summer, has been linked with a move to Inter Miami, according to the Spanish website Defensa Central.
Marcelo has been a member of the Real Madrid team throughout the majority of the club’s history. The 33-year-old made the move to Los Blancos from his childhood club Fluminense in January 2007. He soon established himself as a regular in the starting XI. The Brazilian has had an illustrious career with the Spanish capital club. He has appeared in over 500 matches and contributed 38 goals and an incredible 101 assists.
Marcelo has five La Liga crowns and four UEFA Champions League medals to his name with Real Madrid, in addition to a slew of other trophies and awards. It is, however, becoming clear that the experienced full-time back’s at Real Madrid is drawing to a close soon.
Marcelo’s playing time has decreased over the previous two seasons as his performance levels have deteriorated. As a result, Real Madrid is unlikely to grant him a contract extension before the conclusion of this season. In other words, the 33-year-old will be a free agent once the season ends.
What is in store with regards to the future of Marcelo?
In the recent past, there have been talks about returning to Brazil. The Brazilian international, though, may wind up in the United States of America. Major League Soccer team Inter Miami are anxious to recruit him. According to the source, club owner David Beckham is committed to bringing his former Real Madrid colleague to the club. He has offered him a contract offer in an attempt to persuade him to join the Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise.
With the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, Inter Miami has already recruited one former Real Madrid star. The club has shown an interest in midfield master Luka Modric as well. In comparison to the Croatian midfielder, Marcelo seems to be a much more feasible transfer target for the MLS club.
According to the source, the defender does not want to stay in Europe once his contract with Real Madrid expires in the summer of 2022. A transfer to Major League Soccer (MLS) is something he is ready to explore, as is the possibility of returning to his native Brazil. As a result, it remains to be seen if Beckham can persuade Marcelo to accept the contract offer from Inter Miami in the following days and weeks.
