Having fallen victim to a spate of injuries in recent weeks, Manchester United were forced to play Michael Carrick alongside Daley Blind in a makeshift central-defensive pairing on Sunday.
Although the result went the Red Devils’ way against Arsenal, it is clear that an imposing defender is needed to partner first-choice Chris Smalling at the heart of their defence.
If reports in the Daily Express are to be believed, then Marquinhos is one of five targets for the Old Trafford outfit this summer.
The presence of David Luiz and Thiago Silva has meant that the 21-year-old has not started as often as he would have liked this term, though he has certainly made the most of his opportunities:
|21Y 9M||AGE||26Y 3M|
|6FT 0IN||HEIGHT||6FT 4IN|
|11ST 11LB||WEIGHT||14ST 11LB|
|FL | PSG |||| MNU | PL|
|06/15 - 06/16||06/15 - 06/16|
Paris Saint-Germain have kept nine top-flight clean sheets when the Brazilian international has been involved, whilst his minutes per goal against average is very similar to that of Smalling in the Premier League.
Quick, strong and desperate to make his mark at a big club, Marquinhos’ Ligue 1 record to date suggests that he would definitely improve the Manchester United defence:
