Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has no intention of leaving and is focused on fighting for his place despite the pending arrival of France international Ferland Mendy, a source close to the player has told ESPN FC.

Marcelo has won 20 trophies including four Champions Leagues since joining the club in 2007, but the 31-year-old had a poor 2018-19 season during which he lost his place at one point to youngster Sergio Reguilon.

Although Zinedine Zidane's return in March saw Marcelo return to the first team, the French coach has played a key role in the €55 million deal to sign Lyon player Mendy which, sources have told ESPN FC, is due to be completed this week.

However a source close to Marcelo told ESPN FC that Mendy's signing would not change anything for the Madrid vice-captain, as his only thought remained to work hard to be first choice for Madrid for 2019-20.
