Chelsea, Manchester United Battle For Marquinhos

MarquinhosPremier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United are among clubs showing interest in Paris Saint-Germain hotshot Marquinhos.

According to Le 10 Sport, the Blues are ready to offer €55 million for the Brazilian footballer as they hope to rejuvenate their back line.

However, Manchester United and Barcelona are keen as well, although PSG do not seem prepared to negotiate the sale at the moment.

Namely, even though Marquinhos is not entirely satisfied with his status in the squad, the Saints have offered the centre-back a lucrative contract in an attempt to ward off interest in his services.

They also allowed the Brazilian to play at the 2016 Summer Olympics, hoping he would appreciate the gesture and be more likely to remain at Parc des Princes.

Marquinhos has helped the Selecao lift the coveted trophy on home soil, starting all six games and scoring in the penalty shoot-out.
