Chelsea outbid Man Utd and Barcelona for defender!


Should Chelsea have bought him?

Chelsea reportedly outbid Manchester United and Barcelona for PSG’s Marquinhos last summer.

The star was often linked with a move away from the French capital this summer, and had several clubs after his services.

However, PSG were reluctant to part with the 22-year-old and he stayed at the Parc des Princes, where he is currently under contract until 2019.

It’s thought that Chelsea bid a huge £52million for him.

However, his agent, Giuliano Bertolucci, has confirmed the French club never had any intentions of selling the defender.

“The president of PSG never wanted to negotiate a transfer, neither with Barca nor with anyone,” he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

“Last summer there was a €60million (£52m) proposal for Marquinhos and he rejected it.”
