The 20 year old Brazilian has seen his first team starts limited since the arrival, from Chelsea, of £50m man David Luiz and this may aid Jose Mourinho’s push to sign the former AS Roma man.

The £40m rated Parc des Princes star could be seen as a long term replacement for John Terry, with oft cited alternative Kurt Zouma impressing a great deal in a defensive midfield role of late, and the previous business conducted by the two clubs could add further fuel to speculation of a possible agreement.

PSG are struggling to retain their Ligue 1 crown and the allure of a move to Chelsea may interest Marquinhos though the Sao Paulo born man may demand some guarantees of regular action before considering such a switch.
