Free since his departure from Real Madrid, the Brazilian international should commit in the next few hours in favor of Leicester.
Leicester City are reportedly close to completing a surprise deal on the final day of the transfer window for former Real Madrid left-back Marcelo.
The Brazilian enjoyed an outstanding career at the Bernabeu side, winning the Champions League five times, La Liga six times and many other accolades. Considered one of the best full-backs in the world when he was at the top, Marcelo would be a great addition to this struggling Leicester side, who appear to be in need of new blood.
Brendan Rodgers has had a tough summer, losing Wesley Fofana to Chelsea and Kasper Schmeichel to Nice, and hasn’t made many significant signings to bolster the squad.
Marcelo’s form raises questions
An agreement is therefore now very close for Marcelo to join the King Power Stadium on a free transfer. Leicester City are reportedly close to completing a surprise deal on transfer closing day for former Real Madrid left-back Marcelo.
Leicester fans are hoping Marcelo still has the athleticism to win in the Premier League, as the 34-year-old barely played for Los Blancos last season.
