The left-back brought the curtain down on a 16-season stay at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, opting not to sign a new contract in the Spanish capital.

He has been linked with moves all over Europe since departing Real Madrid, and was it had been reported that he was in talks with Premier League side Leicester City on deadline day, but the Foxes denied such a deal was in the works.

Olympiacos confirmed the signing of Marcelo on Friday night, with the Brazilian signing an initial one-year deal with the option for a further 12 months.

The Greek champions' owner, Evangelos Marinakis, is also in charge at Nottingham Forest, who have overseen one of the busiest transfer windows in recent memory.

Forest signed Hwang Ui-jo and Josh Bowler this summer, but both were immediately loaned to Olympiacos.
