Van Gaal set sights on late swoop for Brazil starlet.
Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos is a top deadline day target for Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, reports CaughtOffside.
The 20-year-old Brazilian is a top prospect in the game and has recently been linked with a move to Old Trafford as van Gaal eyes improvements at the back.
The Red Devils have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels in that position, and look ready to spend big on the final day of the transfer window.
Marquinhos only joined PSG last season but has fallen out of favour in the starting lineup this term, despite his enormous potential.
