Fenerbahce are preparing a contract offer for Brazilian full-back Marcelo, GOAL can confirm.

The 34-year-old has left Real Madrid, as he confirmed he would leave the Spanish side after the Champions League final victory against Liverpool last month.

Several clubs are interested in landing the legendary player, but a move to Turkey could be on the cards.

What do we know about Fenerbahce's interest in Marcelo?

The Istanbul club are set to make an official offer to Marcelo in the coming days.

Coach Jorge Jesus has urged the Super Lig team to sign the five-time Champions League winner.

The player's representatives expect an offer to be made by the end of the week.
