Marquinhos' Agent Puts Barcelona On Alert
The agent of Marquinhos has put Barcelona on alert for the player by revealing that contract talks with current club Paris Saint Germain have reached an impasse. The Brazilian centre half has long been linked with the La Liga club and agent Giuliano Bertolucci admits that a proposal from Barca would be interesting.
Marquinhos has won his place in the starting line-up for club and country over the last year, with PSG selling David Luiz back to Chelsea and the 22 year old forming a partnership with João Miranda at international level.
His agent Giuliano Bertolucci told Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, “Marquinhos has not renewed, it's been five months we've negotiated with PSG. La Liga is interesting to play in and Barca is a great club, there is always interest in a club like that."
Bertolucci also alluded to the player’s friendship with Barca forward Neymar and suggested that there were Premier League clubs interested in Marquinhos. He also revealed that PSG refused a bid of €60m from an unnamed club last summer.
