Brazil left-back Marcelo keen to extend Real Madrid contract

Real Madrid's Marcelo
Marcelo has been at Real Madrid since 2007.

Brazil international Marcelo is hoping to extend his Real Madrid contract, which expires in 2020, having only signed a new deal last summer.

Marcelo, 27, has made 256 appearances for the Spanish giants since arriving at the club in 2007 from Fluminense and the left-back has no desire to move away from the Bernabeu anytime soon.

"One of my aims is to continue here, to renew my contract and stay as many years as possible," Marcelo said, in quotes reported by Marca.

Madrid went into the season with high expectations but not much has gone according to plan. Los Blancos were expelled from this season's Copa del Rey for fielding an ineligible player, Denis Cheryshev, and they are third in La Liga, 10 points adrift of league leaders Barcelona with eight games remaining and El Clasico on April 2.

Madrid, who sacked coach Rafa Benitez and replaced him with Zinedine Zidane earlier this year, are still alive in the Champions League and will take on Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals but Marcelo believes they should have got off to a better start this season.

"Our preseason was not the best," he said. "I don't know what happened but I believe we are paying the price. We still have league games to prepare for the Champions League and we will see what happens."
