PSG’s Marquinhos says a Catalan radio station FAKED an interview in which ‘he’ asked for Barca move [Audio]

This is a crackpot story.

On Tuesday afternoon, Catalan radio station Rac1 held a live interview with PSG defender Marquinhos, in which the highly-prized centre-back indicated he wanted to join Barcelona.

In the interview Marquinhos said:

It’s a dream to play for Barcelona. My desire is to play for Barça. I want to play for Barça, not for PSG.

Barça is better than PSG. Barça is a great club. Neymar has told me that he is living very well in Barcelona.

Now there was only one thing wrong with the interview: it was complete made up!

In a mad twist, Marquinhos has come out to deny he was ever on the phone with Rac1, saying:

The statements to RAC1 radio are totally FALSE, I never said those things and that is not my voice!

The ten minute interview (in Spanish) can be heard below.
