The Brazilian defender can go into Real Madrid history if he maintains his current form.
Marcelo has just made his 500th match in his career for Real Madrid . The star born in 1988 came out in a recent match against Real Zaragoza, thereby officially becoming the second foreign player to play in Real history.
The record for the number of foreign appearances for a foreign player now belongs to Roberto Carlos, with 527 appearances. The former Brazilian left-back is the most played foreign player in the history of the Spanish Royal Club. Roberto Carlos played for Real for 11 years, from 1996 to 2007.
Marcelo was the replacement of Roberto Carlos in the left wing corridor of Real then. The 31-year-old defender made his Real debut on January 7, 2007. Since then, Marcelo has won a total of 21 titles with Real, including 4 La Liga titles, 4 Champions League titles .
The fact that Marcelo can catch up with the legend of Roberto Carlos, to be able to go into Real history depends a lot on his performance next time. Marcelo’s position is fiercely competed by young star Ferland Mendy.
Since the beginning of the season, Marcelo has only 14 appearances for Real on all fronts. His contract with Real is still valid until June 2022. Cristiano Ronaldo was once thought to want Juventus to recruit Marcelo, thereby helping him reunite his former teammate.
