Real Madrid legend Marcelo set leave current club before making his official debut

Former Real Madrid left-back Marcelo may leave Greek side Olympiacos F.C. before making his debut for the club, as per El Nacional.

The Brazilian surprised many when he joined Olympiacos after leaving Madrid this past summer.

He became a Los Blancos legend during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, making 546 appearances for the La Liga giants.

However, Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti couldn't guarantee the left-back game time as he sat on a high salary.

There was interest from several clubs abroad and in Spain, including Real Valladolid, but none were enticing to the Brazilian.

A move to the Greek side ensued where he linked up with former Madrid winger James Rodriguez.

Olympiacos fans have heralded the signing of the legendary left-back but injury problems have stopped him from making his debut for the club.

Marcelo's poor form and fitness problems are so troublesome that there is a chance he will leave the Karaiskaki Stadium without making a single appearance.

The Brazilian's close relationship with compatriots Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo gave Ancelotti a lot to ponder with regards to his future.

His contract was expiring in the summer and a decision needed to be made.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was willing to hand Marcelo a new one-year deal but Ancelotti insisted they part ways with the left-back.

Marcelo signed a one-year deal with Olympiacos and it remains to be seen if he will even see that deal out.
