Enter your own name to finish that title if you want but there could be few players less welcome at Spurs than Real Madrid’s Marcelo. After his role in Peter Crouch’s sending off at the Bernabeu and his evident delight in the red card, the Brazilian remains an unpopular figure judging by the reaction on social media to the own goal that began the scoring in this summer’s World Cup.
There is, however, a rumour that Tottenham could be interested in bringing the player to White Hart Lane although that may be based on the suggestion that we were chasing his replacement Fabio Coentrao. Marcelo is competing with the Portuguese for the left back slot but with Coentrao essentially first choice, it’s claimed he will be looking to move on.
Spurs need a left back and the new head coach has no previous with Marcelo but would we be selling our soul in order to bring the 26 year old to the Lane?
