According to Catalan paper Sport, Marquinhos’s brother Luan Aoas and agent Giuliano Bertolucci have been in Barcelona in recent days to meet with representatives of Luis Enrique’s men in a meeting that confirmed FCB’s interest in the player.
The Brazilian defender is unhappy with his lack of playing time at PSG and will ask for a transfer if his status (3rd central defender) does not change between now and the end of the season.
The report claims that Manchester City and Chelsea are also in contact with the player’s entourage, with Marquinhos’s primary desire being to remain at PSG but with more playing time.
Should Marquinhos’s situation fail to change, then Barcelona is his priority, according to the report.
Verdict: Barcelona are a known suitor of Marquinhos’s, with the Brazilian serious with his desire to leave the club if he is not given guarantees by Laurent Blanc about increased playing time next season.
