Real Madrid Veteran Desires To Win One More Trophy Before Retiring To Be An Underwear Model. Real Madrid’s Marcelo reportedly wants to win one more piece of silverware before retiring to pursue a new career – underwear modelling. The 33-year-old, who has had an impressive career with Los Blancos, is nearing the end of his football career and has decided on his next step.
According to Paco Gonzalez, the La Liga player is set to model underwear for a North American brand, which isn’t unusual for footballers, especially those who have played at the Bernabeu Stadium.
David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are two names that are associated with championing underwear, with the pair even starting their own bodywear companies.
Marcelo appears to be following suit, having shared clips of workout sessions on social media, which has taken many by surprise.
Real Madrid crashed out of the Copa Del Rey quarterfinals on Thursday, losing 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao, so Marcelo’s chances of winning the league rest on success in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

Since joining the Spanish giants in 2007 from Brazilian side Fluminense, Marcelo has had a stellar career at the La Liga leaders.
In his illustrious career with Real Madrid, the defender has appeared in over 350 games and scored 26 goals.
Marcelo’s trophy cabinet includes four UEFA Champions League trophies, five La Liga titles, and two Copa Del Rey trophies, and he will undoubtedly retire with an impressive collection of honors.
His work rate and vision on the ball have been crucial during Madrid’s recent period of dominance in competitions, and many consider him to be one of the best left-backs in football history.
Real Madrid are reportedly looking for a replacement for Marcelo once he starts showing off his underwear, with the club interested in Rayo Vallecano’s Fran Garcia.
The player was a part of Real Madrid’s youth system until he left in 2021, but the club owns 50% of his image rights and will be able to recruit him for a mere €5 million.
