That is according to FootMercato, which reports that the 34-year-old veteran has been an unmitigated failure since his free transfer move to Greece.
Brazilian left-back Marcelo left Madrid in the summer at the end of his contract after 15-and-a-half years at the Santiago Bernabeu.
But he has struggled badly at Olympiakos, making just five dismal appearances as a substitute.
He also struggled with injuries and looked well short of the fitness required for top-level football.
Subsequently, it is increasingly possible that Olympiakos will release Marcelo from his contract.
Marcelo’s Real Madrid career
Marcelo left Madrid in the summer having just lifted his fifth Champions League and his first as club captain. The Blancos defeated Liverpool 1-0 in Paris in the final and also clinched La Liga this past season.
In total, the Brazilian won 25 titles with Madrid, which is a club record.
