Juventus kick-started their Serie A campaign with a victory against Chievo before defeating Lazio, 2-0, in their second fixture this season.
Juventus have begun their journey to defend the Serie A title. Cristiano Ronaldo’s much-discussed shocking move to Juventus has made the fans and pundits expect much from the Old Lady this season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s impact was visible as Juventus’ share prices soared up when rumours suggested Ronaldo would join them.
Juventus’ game against Chievo and Lazio also registered a decent, above average attendance, while reports suggest Juventus sell one Cristiano Ronaldo jersey every one minute. With the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Lady become the apple of the eye of numerous football followers. And the Cristiano impact is likely to continue as reports suggest Juventus are interested in signing Real Madrid and Brazil left-back Marcelo.
While they believe that they could not materialize a deal for the Brazilian defender before the transfer closes at the end of the month, they think they could lure away his services in the next summer transfer. Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo enjoyed huge success while the former was at Real Madrid as the duo linked well and brought devastating effect on the pitch.
While it is believed that Marcelo would a huge role in Julen Lopetegui’s Real Madrid, he was subbed early in their recent clash against Girona, a game in which they made a comeback victory. Juventus have noted this and hopes they could capitalize on this opportunity and buy the Brazilian’s service to the Turin-based outfit.
If the deal does happen next summer, we would see the lethal Marcelo rejoining his friend Cristiano Ronaldo. While the Portuguese Skipper played for Juventus against Chievo and Lazio, he failed to score any goals. The main reasons behind his failure to score were that the opponents defended him in numbers and the incapability of the wingers to provide Ronaldo balls as Marcelo did at Real Madrid.
Even though he was taken off early in Real Madrid’s clash against Girona, it is highly unlikely that the team would let go of another star player who has grown and become as one of the influential figures in Real Madrid dressing room. Marcelo’s presence in the attacking half has often been questioned when his defensive duties are not fulfilled.
