Marcelo ban tempered by new deal
Marcelo has committed his long-term future to Real Madrid on the same day that he was served with a two-match ban by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
The Brazil international has racked up over 400 appearances for Los Blancos since being brought to Europe from hometown club Fluminense in 2006.
With four La Liga titles and three Champions League winners' medals already in his bag, including the league and European double last season, Marcelo has been rewarded with a new contract through to 2022.
The 29-year-old, who is scheduled for a press conference on Thursday, also received the news that he will miss the next two domestic games following his red card against Levante on Saturday.
Marcelo was dismissed in the closing stages of his side's 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu after aiming a petulant kick at Jefferson Lerma, with the RFEF announcing his suspension on Wednesday.
However, he will be available for Zinedine Zidane's side when they begin their back-to-back Champions League title defence at home to APOEL in Group H later in the evening.
