Real Madrid star Marcelo has dismissed speculation linking him with a switch to Juventus and says he is happy at the Bernabeu.

Marcelo is currently struggling to force his way into the Real side and reports have suggested he could head to Turin at the end of the season in search of a fresh challenge.

However the defender says he is not ready to end his 12-year association with the club just yet.

Marcelo told Esporte Interativo: ‘I’d also like to know where are these rumours coming from because it’s not normal.

It’s funny because they [the press] make pictures with a Juve shirt.

‘Juve is a splendid team since the times of [Pavel] Nedved, I once played against them and he was there, it was amazing, I changed shirts with him, but I’m from Real Madrid.

‘I have a contract with Real Madrid and the things that are being published, I don’t know what they are [coming from], you don’t know, many people don’t know either and honestly, I’m a sincere man, you know it.

If there was anything to be told, I’d say it – but nothing.’
