Marquinhos is nearing a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain. The talks set to conclude a year and a half after they began.
With only a few details left to iron out, the league leaders’ Brazilian captain has agreed to sign a two-year extension with an option for an additional season. His current deal was set to expire at the end of next season.
The lengthy duration of the talks, which began during former Sporting Director Leonardo’s reign, was primarily due to an initial disparity in salary demands, as well as a mutual feeling that there was no rush.
Marquinhos is set to stay, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said to “dream” of Marquinhos finishing his career at PSG. Early in the negotiations, the Brazilian made it clear that he intended to remain in Paris. Since joining from Roma in 2013, he has made 391 appearances in all competitions. He has record of winning the Ligue 1 title seven times.
