[Juventus-linked Marcelo wants Real Madrid stay] I don’t want to leave and I don’t think Madrid would let me anyway. I’m really happy here. Since I came here with my family, it’s been incredible. I don’t really know if it’s true that Juve wanted to sign me to be honest

A couple of years ago I heard that I’d signed for Juve, that I’d already pulled on the Juve shirt and that I couldn’t live without Cristiano. People invent a lot of things. It was all fine with me, as I saw that some Juve fans quite liked the idea of me joining

[Marcelo eager for La Liga’s return] We’d never gone so long without being able to train out on the pitch and our desire to play football has been growing ever since we stopped. Now we’re close to getting going again and we can’t wait. It’s been different to what we’re used to. We have to take the positives from it and now we’re used to the routine; it’s not like it used to be but everything’s good. We’re all healthy, the training sessions have been fantastic in recovering our rhythm. Having not touched a ball for so long, when you go back out on the pitch you’ve lost your touch a bit, but now we just can’t wait to start playing games

[Marcelo is eager to point out that you win finals at Real Madrid] The most important thing is that when we win a trophy, we don’t think about stopping and letting time go by. We always think about winning more, even if we’ve won three in a row. When I arrived, Madrid taught me to fight until the end. You win the finals. I’ve learned a lot with Real Madrid about this. When we think we’ve won everything, we want to win again. That’s our way of thinking.

[Marcelo, who has won 21 trophies across his 13 years with the Blancos] Real Madrid grow in finals. We have a mentality for this kind of match and at the end you see your friend giving everything and you have to give it too. The coach is the same. Motivation makes you feel good, you grow in the match and when you play a final you have to win it

[Madrid sat two points adrift of Clasico rivals Barcelona in the Liga table] We’re improving, we’ve had a hard time without training or playing football, without contact with our team-mates. We have got 11 finals and we have to give everything to win. We are playing for a very important trophy; we will try to win everything [remaining]. We are excited to be able to train again and to know that we are going to play in La Liga again, too

[Marcelo then quoted 2Pac] We can never go nowhere unless we share with each other. We gotta start makin’ changes. Learn to see me as a brother instead of two distant strangers. And that’s how it’s supposed to be […] I’d love to go back to when we played as kids but things change, and that’s the way it is […]
