Marcelo’s future with Real Madrid remains unclear despite having one more year left on his contract.
Various reports linked the left-back to Inter Miami, but manager Phil Neville decided to shoot down these rumors during a press conference with the media.
Neville believes that Marcelo is a great player; however, he thinks that the squad has enough left-backs. The English manager went on to say that he would rather see other positions reinforced this summer.
“I don’t need another left-back. I have more left-backs than yellow taxis; you know what I mean. We could reinforce other positions,” Neville said.
Despite not wanting Marcelo, Neville states that players of the 33-year-old’s caliber speak volumes to the project that co-owner David Beckham is building in South Florida.
I think it shows the level of the club we are building. That all these stars are linked to Inter Miami is brilliant, but I am looking for stability. I want the players who come to be here for a long time,” Neville said.
