Paris Saint Germain veteran defender Marquinhos is closing on a contract extension with his club, according to L'Equipe.

On 19 July 2013, Marquinhos signed a five-year deal with French side Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €31.4 million.

As indicated by BBC Sport, this was then the highest transfer fee for a teenager, despite the fact that Sky Sports report it as then the fifth-highest such move, and French news channel BFM TV portrayed the transfer as the fifth most costly ever for a defender, after those of Rio Ferdinand, Thiago Silva, Lilian Thuram, and Dani Alves.

The Brazil international was intensely linked with various European powerhouses during the recently closed summer transfer window however he dismissed every one of the propositions.

According to the most recent advancement, the 25-year-old whose present deal with the club will lapse in 2022 is set to extend his stay in the French capital.

Marquinhos is a fan most loved at the Parc des Princes and that was never more clear than on September 14 against RC Strasbourg. That was the day PSG unveiled their retro-inspired third kit. Before the starting whistle blown, PSG supporters lifted a tifo from the stands of Marquinhos wearing the new shirt in a showcase that the Brazilian portrayed as “a significant honor and an incredible euphoria for me and all my family” on Twitter.

On Friday at his pre-match public interview, Thomas Tuchel affirmed that he has a group of five players that he relies on for information yet just two of them are skippers and the other three could progress toward becoming commanders. The two selected ones are 35-year-old Thiago Silva and Marquinhos. Given his age, you have to believe Silva will be moving on at some point during Marquinhos’ current contract, making the younger Brazilian the primary captain of PSG in the very near future.
