Marcelo has sought to bring an end to the speculation suggesting that he is destined to be heading out of Real Madrid for a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.

Speculation continues to suggest that the Brazil international will be on the move this summer.

Italy is considered to be his most likely destination, with Ronaldo eager to see a familiar face drafted in alongside him in Turin.

but Marcelo claims the Portuguese told him of his intentions prior to a European showpiece which saw Madrid secure a hat-trick of continental crowns.

He added: “We were training for our last Champions League Final against Liverpool and he told me: ‘I’m leaving’.

“So yes, he confessed it to me before the match.”

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo has gone on to star at Juventus, with his goal return standing at 20 from 31 appearances.

Marcelo, meanwhile, has formed part of a testing campaign for Madrid.

They have shown signs of life of late, moving back into second spot in La Liga, while a fourth successive Champions League success remains up for grabs heading into the first leg of a last-16 showdown with Ajax on Wednesday.
