Barcelona remain keen to sign PSG defender MarquinhosMarquinhos scores for PSG last season
The Brazilian defender has long been linked with the Catalan giants but the transfer was thrown into doubt recently after the Barcelona club completed the signing of French left-back Jeremy Mathieu from Valencia for a fee of €20m.
Spanish daily El Mundo Deportivo has reported, however, that Barcelona remain keen on signing Marquinhos from PSG, with the fee thought to be in the region of €40m.
The 20-year-old, who has one senior Brazilian cap to his name, only joined PSG last summer, completing a switch from Roma for €31.4m. He helped PSG win both Ligue 1 and the Coupe de la Ligue last season.
Barcelona are keen to add to their defence whilst the French champions are hopeful of raising money following the €50m capture of David Luiz from Chelsea.
