Marquinhos wants Barca move, But Roma want him to move to PSG.
Italian football journalist Tancredi Palmeri has shone some light on the future of Roma’s talented young Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos.
The 19-year-old is a wanted man after a brilliant debut season in Italy. The tweet suggests that while Marquinhos would prefer a move to Barcelona for sporting reasons, Roma are attracted to the prospect of selling him to PSG for a greater profit.
Interestingly, Marquinhos’ move to either of the clubs could also dictate where Brazil captain Thiago Silva’s future lies. If PSG do sign Marquinhos, Thiago Silva could be free to join Barcelona, but if Marquinhos joins Barcelona, Thiago Silva will probably remain in France.
Barcelona’s bid for Marquinhos is favored by the Roma player, while the PSG’s is favored by the club
