Liverpool have been linked with a summer move for Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, but face a battle with Juventus.
The Brazil left-back was agonisingly dropped from Real’s starting line-up for the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid last month, but he proved his worth when he came on in extra-time and scored his side’s third in a 4-1 win.
The situation is believed to have left the defender unhappy and there has been claims that Liverpool were plotting a move.
He is out of contact next summer and with Brendan Rodgers loking to add to his squad this window, a bargain buy seemed to be on the cards.
However, the TalkSport website claim Juve boss Antonio Conte wants him in his starting line-up and will battle Liverpool to get a deal done.
