Much has been made of the future of Brazilian central defender Marquinhos in recent days, especially following his omission from the PSG starting XI last week when the Ligue 1 champions drew disappointingly 2-2 with Manchester City in the Champions League.
L’Équipe have been reporting that the player is almost certainly going to attempt to leave PSG in the summer, having so far failed to break into the starting central defensive pairing, with David Luiz currently, rather controversially, standing in his way.
According to the French newspaper, multiple top European sides are monitoring the young Brazilian’s current situation. Manchester United and Barcelona, who have had bids turned down for the player in previous transfer windows, continue to maintain their interest.
Perhaps more surprising however is the addition of Real Madrid and Arsenal to Marquinhos’s list of possible summer suitors, as revealed by the French daily this morning.
Marquinhos is due to partner Thiago Silva tomorrow at the heart of the PSG defence in their crucial return leg against Manchester City.
