Real Madrid defender Marcelo admitted that he could leave the capital if there comes a time that Los Blancos no longer need his services.
With Cristiano Ronaldo and Kiko Casillas leaving the club, the Brazilian has lost two of his best friends at the club.
He’s also fallen out of favour with Madrid boss Santiago Solari and the 30-year-old has been linked with a switch away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I had a very good relationship with Cristiano, his family and his girlfriend,” he told Esporte Interativo, according to Marca.
“I played 9 years with him and it’s normal to be sad.
“[I was also sad] with [the departure of] Kiko Casilla, who was sitting next to me [in the dressing room].
“Every day I was saying, ‘How are you Kiko, how are you doing?’ and now I have no one next to me.
“On the other side I have Bale, but Bale does not speak [Spanish] as he only speaks English and we talk with gestures.”
Marcelo maintained that he has never thought about leaving Madrid. But he did not rule out a potential move away from Los Blancos.
“Leaving Madrid has never crossed my mind, I trust myself more than any other person and there is no reason to leave,” he noted.
“If that happens, they can pay me and everything will be fixed.
“I trust in myself, in my work, but if the day comes when Madrid do not want me, I’m going.
“I’ll be sad, but I’ll go, though I’m sure that I’m not going to be offloaded.”
