Chelsea and Man Utd fight for Marquinhos


The battle for marquee signings in this summer transfer window is already hotting up with another head to head between Manchester United and Chelsea brewing.

Both teams are preparing bids for PSG’s Brazilian central defender Marquinhos, 21, who is valued around £50 million plus.

The French club would prefer not to sell their man, however if the player pushes through a move, a source at PSG has indicated a swap + cash deal would be preferred.

Chelsea and Manchester United both plan to build their defence around Marquinhos, with both clubs planning major rebuilding of the current squad.

The London club may hold the strongest hand in any deal with PSG’s long standing interest in Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. If Marquinhos was to leave Paris this summer the most likely deal with would include a deal with Hazard.
