In the meantime, new gaffer Mourinho is reportedly eyeing Real Madrid icon Marcelo as Spinazzola’s replacement this term.

Brazilian veteran Marcelo has just one year left on his contract.

But the defender looks set to play a role under new Real boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has named Marcelo as the club’s captain following Sergio Ramos’ exit.
