Marcelo left Real Madrid this summer after 15 trophy-laden years and has joined Olympiacos as a free agent.

WHAT HAPPENED? Marcelo has been club-less since leaving Real Madrid in July, however he has now joined Greek side Olympiacos on a one-year deal. The Brazilian has the opportunity to extend his contract for another year if he wishes.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Marcelo has featured in the FIFpro XI six times, the UEFA Team of the Year three times and made France Football's team on the decade in 2019 (2010-19). He has also been capped by Brazil 58 times.

WHAT THEY SAID: Olympiacos hailed the signing of Marcelo, tweeting: "A true football LEGEND joins OLYMPIACOS! Welcome MARCELO to Piraeus."
