Manchester United will be happy to learn that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has ordered for one of their rumoured transfer targets to be sold.
According to Don Balon, the Madrid boss believes he’s got a decent long-term replacement in youngster Theo Hernandez to come in at left-back in the near future.
This could see Marcelo offloaded, which may be of interest to United, who were linked with him on one or two occasions in the last few summers.
It remains to be seen if the Brazilian remains a priority for Jose Mourinho, but it is known that the club are on the lookout for a new signing at left-back due to the struggles of Luke Shaw.

United have been linked with a host of big names like Alex Sandro and Danny Rose for that role, but it could now be that they’ll take a look at Marcelo as he becomes available.
Transfermarkt suggest the 29-year-old would command a fee of around £36million – a bargain in this market for a player who’s been one of the very best in the world in his position for the last few years.
