Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Marquinhos’ contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain is “just a matter of time,” although the deal is not yet signed.
French publication L’Équipe reported earlier this week that the league leaders’ Brazilian captain had agreed to put pen to paper on a two-year extension along with an option for an additional campaign – his current deal was expiring at the end of next season.
Romano now reports that PSG are closing in on the extension and that it is “just a matter of time” until it is signed and sealed. The Brazilian centre-back is convinced of the future of the project and wants to stay with Les Parisiens.
After nearly a decade at the club, the PSG captain is now set to carry on – with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said to be “dreaming” of having Marquinhos finish his career at PSG. The Brazilian had signalled that he was intent on staying in the French capital very early on in the talks. He has made 391 appearances in all competitions since his arrival from Roma in 2013, lifting the Ligue 1 title seven times along the way.
