They really want to bring the Brazilian to Old Trafford…
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has personally spoken to Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos in order to persuade him to sign for the club, according to Spanish paper SPORT.
The Dutchman apparently told the 20-year-old that he has complete faith in his abilities, but negotiations with the Ligue 1 side are not going well.
The Red Devils have had one bid rejected and it looks unlikely this move will go through before the end of the transfer window.
The Brazilian could leave the French side as he has found it hard to become a regular in the starting line up. At United it is thought he would be first choice at centre-back.
