The Los Blancos club legend switched to the Serie A giants this summer and has kept in regular touch with Marcelo about his new life in Italy.
It has led to speculation that the Brazil left-back could follow suit and link-up with Ronaldo again in Turin in the future, however, there is no suggestion Real’s vice-captain, 30, will move from the Bernabeu.
Alex Sandro’s future at the Old Lady has been the subject of debate for some time, and given Marcelo plays in the same position, that has only served to increase rumours.
But, for now, that is all it is.
Real Madrid will offer star man Luka Modric a sizeable pay rise to guarantee his long-term Los Blancos future, amid speculation Inter Milan are ready to sign the Croatian.
The 32-year-old’s contract runs until 2020 and is worth €8m-per-season, but Whites president Florentino Perez is prepared to give the playmaker a substantial wage increase.
Modric is still viewed as the club’s most important player and is fundamental to Julen Lopetegui’s plans moving forward.
Real are confident he has many more influential years left in the tank and want to secure his services, with Marca reporting a new deal is imminent as Perez meets Modric’s representatives this week.
Keylor Navas does not want to leave Real Madrid despite Thibaut Courtois’s big-money arrival at the Bernabeu.
The Costa Rican, who has been the Whites’ No1 for the past three seasons and won as many Champions Leagues in the process, is unfazed by the Belgian newcomer and wants to stay and fight for his place.
Real have no plans to sell the 31-year-old, who has a contract until 2021.
“Of course, and I say this with force, I have the same desire to leave than I have to die,” Navas told Onda Cero.
