Old Trafford side plan Real Madrid raid.
Man United are reportedly on ‘red alert’ as Real Madrid look to sell Marcelo to make way for Bayern Munich full-back David Alaba according to the Daily Express.
Louis van Gaal is said to be keen on bringing in a new right-back and 26 year old Brazilian Marcelo would certainly represent a huge improvement on the likes of Rafael and Chris Smalling.
Marcelo is an experienced and very capable performer who has made 279 appearances for Real Madrid since moving to the Bernabeu in January 2007 and is Carlo Ancelotti’s first choice starter ahead of Fabio Coentrao.
Van Gaal spent £150m on new additions over the summer and after a shaky start to the campaign Man United have started to garner the right results.
Marcelo is a world-class performer who will not wish to stick around at Real Madrid if Austrian Alaba is brought in and could be tempted by a move to Old Trafford.
