Liverpool target rules out Premier League move

Published Add your comment

Liverpool target Marcelo has rubbished claims he could be set to leave Real Madrid in the summer.

The 25-year-old left-back has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in recent weeks as Real Madrid are expected to sign Alberto Moreno in the summer.

Speculation over Marcelo's long-term future at the La Liga giants has been heightened over the last couple of months as the Brazilian defender is yet to sign a new long-term contract at Real Madrid.

Marcelo's current deal is due to end at the end of next season - however the Brazilian defender is confident he will commit his long-term future to the club in due course.

The £25m Liverpool target, speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, said on his desire to stay in the Spanish capital: "My best memory of football was when I signed for Real Madrid because I did not expect it.

"It was a spectacular moment. I've been here since I was 18, I'm from Madrid in practice and I am proud to be one of the captains of Real Madrid."

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers could now turn his attention to Marcelo's Real Madrid teammate Fabio Coentrao.

Rodgers is said to be keen on signing a left-back in the summer as he has been forced into playing either Glen Johnson or Jon Flanagan out of position.
