In 1998, on the strength of his performances both in Argentina and the World Cup, he was sold to S.S. Lazio in Italy for US$18 million.
Salas played in Italy for five years, three with S.S. Lazio (1998–2001), a key catalyst in helping turn around a Lazio team that hadn't won a Scudetto since the 1973–1974 season. His first Serie A appearance was on 4 October 1998. He scored his first goal playing for Lazio a few days later against Inter.
With Lazio he won an Italian cup, a Cup Winners' Cup and a European Super Cup, scoring the match's only goal in the latter, in a 1–0 win over Manchester United. In 2001 he was transferred to Juventus (for cash plus Darko Kovačević) where Salas would endure the worst moments of his career; he was hampered by injuries, allowing him to participate in only 14 games and scoring just 2 goals.
Marcelo enjoys a cult following amongst English speaking Juventini from the United Kingdom, Ireland and the world over. This is because while suffering through the injuries a topic titled "Marcello Salas" was started by a Juventus fan to discuss the injures on the "Football Italia Foro" the topic soon became the place for Juventus fans to come and discuss all things Juve. Now, 15 years later, the Marcello Salas topic is still alive and well on the Football Italia Foro as the place to talk all things Juventus.
