Manchester City join transfer race for PSG defender
According to The Sun, Manchester City have joined the transfer battle with Real Madrid for PSG defender Marquinhos.
Cityzens' defence has been a let-down this season, and Pep Guardiola looks keen on reinforcements in the upcoming transfer window.
The injury of star centre-back Aymeric Laporte and the lack of personnel in the backline has forced Guardiola to utilize Fernandinho as the auxiliary centre-back.
Meanwhile, Marquinhos is reportedly said to be looking for a new challenge as the Brazilian appears reluctant to extend his contract with the Les Parisiens.
The 25-year-old has been an integral part for the Ligue 1 outfit since 2013 and has enjoyed great domestic success with them. The Brazilian international was also part of the side that won Copa America this year.
City are now facing stern competition from La Liga giants Real Madrid, who are also looking keen on the Brazilian defender.
Pep Guardiola's men pulled off a 3-1 comeback win against Leicester City on Saturday.
