Liverpool plan £25m move for La Liga star

Liverpool are planning an audacious £25million move for Real Madrid left back Marcelo in the summer, reports talkSPORT.

The Premier League leaders are eyeing elite signings as they prepare for life back in next season’s Champions League, and reports in Spain suggest Brendan Rodgers has his eye on the Brazilian left back.

Marcelo has been a key first team player at the Bernabeu since joining from Fluminense in 2007, however some reports have suggested Carlo Ancelotti wants to complete the free signing of Ashley Cole from Chelsea this summer.

That could see Real decide to cash in on the 25-year-old, who has just one year remaining on his contract, and may well find an offer of £25million too good to turn down.

Left back has been a problem position for the Reds this season, with Jose Enrique missing since October through injury, and loan signing Aly Cissokho failing to make an impact.

However, youngster Jon Flanagan has impressed everyone at Anfield with his performances over the season, although he is considered a natural right back.

Marcelo – who started his career as a left winger – has amassed over 200 appearances for Real Madrid.
