PSG turn down official €40 million bid from Barcelona for Marquinhos [Di Marzio]

Barcelona’s pursuit of Marquinhos has suffered a blow after they had a €40 million bid rejected by PSG, according to football site Di Marzio.

PSG bought Marquinhos for more than €30 million from AS Roma just one year ago but it seemed as though they reconsidered his long-term suitability for the club with their world record purchase of David Luiz.

However, the fact that they have rejected such an astonishing sum of money for a 20 year old defender suggests that Laurent Blanc would rather not sell the excellent prospect.

It is said that Marquinhos has been identified as the defender Barcelona want to recruit, having already signed Jeremy Mathieu from Valencia.
