Marquinhos reaches contract agreement with Barcelona?

According to Marca, Brazilian defender Marquinhos has reached a salary agreement with Spanish giants Barcelona.

The Spanish paper claims that the 21 year old has reached a deal with FCB that would see him earn €4.5m a year. It is not clear if that is a gross or net figure.

The report is vague and sketchy and the Spanish media outlet has struggled with reliability when it comes to PSG and Spain links in previous transfer windows.

Barcelona’s interest in Marquinhos is undeniable, and the 21 year old’s position as PSG’s 3rd choice central defender is one that he is unlikely to continue to tolerate, but an talk about a pre-agreed contract is undoubtedly premature.

While there may be discreet discussions between Barcelona and Marquinhos’s representatives, they are very unlikely to have culminated in a set agreement.
