The agent of PSG centre back Marquinhos has confirmed that the player is a transfer target for Manchester United.
The Brazilian has struggled for playing time this season as PSG’s coach Laurent Blanc has preferred Thiago Silva and David Luiz in central defence.
This has lead to speculation that Marquinhos could be on his way out of Parc des Princes and make a move to United and his agent has refused to rule out such an eventuality.
“A number of clubs are asking about him; Manchester United are amongst them,” Bertolucci confirmed to Le Parisien.
“He respects the decisions of his coach but he simply wants to play more and spend less time with the substitutes.”
“He’s ready to play right-back or defensive midfield if he must. He’s already done it with Roma and even Brazil.”
“He will become the best defender in the world. He’s just as good as Thiago Silva and David Luiz.”
