Marcelo is now in his thirteenth season at Real Madrid.
The Brazilian left-back moved to Spain as a teenager and it wasn't long before he was first choice ahead of Roberto Carlos.
Aged 30, Marcelo has since won four Champions League titles and has deservedly earned a reputation as one of the finest wing-backs of all-time.
"Marcelo is the best in the world, making football more real," said Roberto Calos in 2016.
"Technically he is better (than I was). I was more power and punch."
Marcelo was in the starting XI for Saturday night's 1-1 La Liga draw away at Athletic Bilbao.
Athletic took the lead through Iker Muniain before Isco came off the bench in the second-half to salvage a point.
Marcelo's outrageous skill
The 30-year-old defender - renowned for his attacking capabilities - is usually seen playing more like a winger than a full-back.
Late in the first-half, Marcelo showed Susaeta exactly what he's capable of with the ball at his feet.
Within five seconds, the Spanish Bilbao winger was beaten twice by Real Madrid's skilful wing-back.
That's some real Brazilian samba magic!
Marcelo played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo for nine years and recently responded to reports linking him with a move to Juventus.
"I am very happy at Madrid," he said, as per AS. "People know what my situation is, I have a lot of years left on my contract, I am very happy here.
"For me it is the best club in the world, I always want to play for the best club in the world.
"I want to play for many years at Madrid, I will look after myself much more than I did when I was 18, that's obvious, all of the footballers do."
