Fenerbahce isn’t the only team interested in signing the former Flamengo player, who spent 15 years at Real Madrid winning trophies. Coach Jorge Sampaoli has recommended that Marseille try to sign him, and the club is hoping to do so. There are other clubs in Qatar attempting to persuade Marcelo to go to the Middle East, as well as interest from Brazil, but Marcelo prefers to stay in Europe.

According to ‘Fanatik,’ Marcelo has two possibilities in Europe. The full-back has categorically dismissed the possibility of a transfer to Qatar. And that a club about which he doesn’t say anything would have paid him ten million dollars a year.

Both Olympique Marseille and Fenerbahce would have a spot for the experienced defender in their plans, and both propositions are intriguing. Marcelo, according to the preceding source, would choose the Turkish squad.

After leaving Real Madrid, Roberto Carlos played there and would have had a lot to say to Marcelo about Fenerbahce. The Turkish side would be prepared to pay four million euros to the Brazilian. It’ll be interesting to see whether this is his ultimate decision.
