Manchester United target and PSG star Marquinhos’ agent has reportedly made contact with Jose Mourinho over a potential move to the club.
The Brazilian has often flirted with a transfer to Old Trafford with the Portuguese manager said to have chased him at one point last season.
Nonetheless, the transfer never materialised though it appears his agent is trying to reopen that door once more to try and a secure a move away.
It’s quite likely Marquinhos’ agent is trying to scare the PSG hierarchy into offer his client a new contract but if there’s any real hope then United may be tempted.
It’s been widely publicised Mourinho is on the lookout for a centre-back and the Ligue 1 star certainly fits the mould of a top defender.

However, the 24 year old doesn’t fit the characteristics the Red Devils’ boss is said to be looking for which is an experienced, proven leader.
Though Marquinhos has proven his quality, he isn’t the most experienced of defenders and isn’t necessarily a leader having played alongside Thiago Silva.
The PSG star would definitely walk right into Manchester United’s starting XI and would still resolve a few of their issues in their troubled backline.
