Real Madrid confirm Marcelo leaving this summer on free transfer

Real Madrid C. F. would like to announce that tomorrow, Monday 13 June, at 1 pm (CET), there will be an institutional farewell and tribute ceremony for our captain Marcelo at Real Madrid City, which will be presided over by club president Florentino Pérez.

After this event, Marcelo will address the media in the press room at Real Madrid City.

The 34-year-old’s contract runs out this month and he has decided to seek a new challenge elsewhere after 15 years at the club.

And the Brazilian is set to get a stunning send-off after helping them to the domestic title and Champions League glory this term.

A statement from the club said: “Real Madrid CF announces that tomorrow, Monday, June 13, at 1:00 p.m., an institutional act of homage and farewell to our captain Marcelo will take place at Real Madrid City, with the presence of our president Florentino Perez.

“Following this act, Marcelo will appear before the media in the press room at Real Madrid City.”

After beating Liverpool 1-0 last month, the South American revealed: “It was my last game with Real Madrid.”

Since joining from Fluminense in 2007, Marcelo has won a staggering 25 trophies.

Those include five Champions League titles, six La Liga titles, and four Club World Cups.

However, last season Marcelo’s role became less vital as he was mainly used as a sub.

He was dropped in favour of Ferland Mendy for most of the campaign.
