Chelsea and Man United boosted as £40m star hints at France exit

Chelsea and Manchester United target Marquinhos has hinted that he will reconsider his future at Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, according to Le Parisien.

The 21-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular role under manager Laurent Blanc as he is currently behind in the pecking order to David Luiz and Thiago Silva.

Both Premier League giants are said to be in the market to buy another centre-back and has already been linked with a move for the Brazil international in the past.

He is also heavily tipped to complete a switch to Barcelona amid speculation that his agent already met with the La Liga champions to discuss a potential £40million deal.

The defender admitted that he is currently focused on his role at PSG, but may rethink his future heading into the summer.

“My future is in Paris? At the moment, yes. But I can only speak of the present,” he said.

“For now, I’m in Paris. Everyone knows you have to have a reflection at the end of the season. We’ll talk about the objectives of the club and of me personally.

“Right now, I try to be professional. I try to work to win my place and to have playing time.

“We’ll see how the season will finish. Afterwards, there will be a reflection.”

He only managed to start 12 Ligue 1 matches this term, featuring another nine from the bench while making another five appearances in the Champions League.
