PSG captain Marquinhos set for contract extension
Baku, April 10, AZERTAC
Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Marquinhos will sign a contract extension with the club soon, according to OneFootball.
Marquinhos is the club captain and is eager to continue with them. His current deal expires at the end of next season, and the club wants to renew it.
Former PSG sporting director Leonardo started the talks, and current sporting advisor Luis Campos is now close to sealing the deal.
PSG recently completed the contract extension of Marco Verratti, and Marquinhos is next in line. The club is trying to secure its key personnel.
The Brazilian’s performances this season have been shaky and not up to their usual standards, but the club is keeping faith in him.
Marquinhos first broke through the Corinthians youth system before joining AS Roma on a season-long loan. The Italians decided to keep him permanently, but PSG had seen enough.
PSG paid €31.4 million to Roma for the teenage defensive talent in 2013. He became one of the most expensive young defenders in the world as he signed a five-year deal.
Marquinhos has subsequently become a world-class defender. He forged an incredible partnership with Brazilian colleague Thiago Silva and later Presnel Kimpemebe.
He has won seven Ligue 1 titles, six Coupe de France, six Coupe de la Ligue and six Trophee des Champions. The 28-year-old reached the Champions League final under Thomas Tuchel in 2020.
There are still a few details to sort out, but the negotiations are progressing well. They are still trying to decide if the deal will run until 2026 or 2027.
After Marquinhos, PSG have a tough decision to make with Sergio Ramos. The Spaniard is approaching the twilight of his career, and the club are yet to decide whether to renew his deal or let him walk for free.
