Marcelo Says He's Confused by Juventus Transfer Links, Happy at Real Madrid

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has said he is unsure where speculation linking him with a move to Juventus has emerged from.

Following the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo from the European champions to the Italian champions, Marcelo has been tipped to follow his former Los Blancos team-mate. It was reported by Sergio Santos Chozas of AS that Ronaldo was pushing Juventus to sign the defender, with the pair said to share a "great friendship."

Marcelo dismissed the rumours, while admitting he does have an admiration for the Turin giants, per Esporte Interativo (h/t AS):
