Real Madrid legend Marcelo has snubbed the opportunity to rejoin his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, at Al Nassr because the Saudi Pro League club could only have completed his signing in June.



Another reason Marcelo failed to join Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia was that Al-Nassr would have had to get rid of a foreign player to accommodate the Brazilian left-back in their team.

Marcelo has already returned to his former club, Fluminense, as a free agent.

His contract with Greek club Olympiakos was recently terminated due to fitness issues.

However, according to CNN Portugal reporter Bruno Andrade, Marcelo instead decided to move to Fluminense as the transfer to the Brazilian club was easier for him to complete.

Andrade tweeted on Friday: “With Cristiano Ronaldo on his eye, Marcelo had conversations with Al Nassr, who, however, could only move forward with the signing in June, when he would still have to release a foreign vacancy in the squad. Fluminense appeared strong in the move, convinced and was faster.”
