Marcelo: I Didn’t Know I Was Signing For Real Madrid

Brazil international Marcelo has revealed that he did not know he was signing for Real Madrid when he flew to Spain as a teenager.

The left back joined Los Blancos from Fluminense 10 years ago, but his trip to the Spanish capital was not what he expected it to be.

Marcelo recently revealed a fascinating anecdote about his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, insisting that when he went to Spain in 2007, he had no idea he would be signing for the club.

« One day, I got a call from an agent. He said, ‘Do you want to go to Real Madrid?’ Then I’m on a plane to Madrid. Remember, I had just turned 18, » he wrote for The Players’ Tribune.

« I swear to God that I thought I was just going there for a chat. When I arrived to meet with the club, I saw the contract on the table, with the Real Madrid crest on it and everything – and I signed it.

« They unveiled me to the media that day. I had no idea. My own family back in Brazil told me that they didn’t believe it was real until they saw the news on Globo Esporte. »
