PSG could be about to tempt Roma into selling Marquinhos for €30m, sending Thiago Silva to Barcelona.
According to Sky Sport Italia this evening, Paris Saint-Germain have presented a huge offer for the 19-year-old defender.
It more than covers the €25m that Roma want for the player, as confirmed by an ‘overheard’ conversation between Roma directors Walter Sabatini and Claudio Fenucci.
That scandal erupted on Tuesday night when the club announced legal action against a radio station that had aired the discussion.
They claimed it came from a wiretapped phone call, while the radio insisted one of the men had simply forgotten to hang up after an interview.
If PSG do pay the €30m for Marquinhos, then it is extremely likely they’ll allow Thiago Silva to join Barcelona.
In fact, Barça had been making bids for Marquinhos as an alternative to fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva.
