The Brazilian youngster is a highly regarded talent after some superb performances showing maturity beyond his years, and Chelsea could be eyeing him as a long-term replacement for John Terry.
Manchester United tried to sign Marquinhos in January but failed with a bid on deadline day, and may now live to regret it as Chelsea join the running.
Both clubs have also been chasing Real Madrid’s young defender Raphael Varane, with players in that position clearly a priority for both clubs this summer.
