Chelsea fail in last ditch attempt to land £40m star

Chelsea have failed in a sensational last-ditch attempt to sign Brazilian international defender Marquinhos in a mega money move from French champions PSG, reports Sky Sports.

The Stamford Bridge side are reported to have tabled two bids worth £25.7m and £40.4m (according to Sky Sports sources) for the PSG man, who can play at both centre-half and right-back.

The 21-year old moved to the French giants from Serie A side Roma in 2013 for a hefty fee thought to be around  €31m.

The Blues are now unlikely to land Everton defender John Stones, with the 6pm deadline fast approaching and the move for the 6-times capped Selecao star comes a shock.

Papy Djilobodji and Baba Rahman have been brought in by Jose Mourinho so far, with Reading defender Michael Hector reported to be close to agreeing a move to the Premier League champions.

Marquinhos has appeared almost 50 times for the Paris outfit, winning two Ligue 1 titles and appeared in Dunga’s Brazil squad for the 2015 edition of the Copa America.
