Posted by:Junaid Effendi Posted date: Sunday, February 01, 2015 /comment : 0 Manchester United are hoping to secure the deal of Paris Saint-Germain centre-half Marquinhos, as per several reports. The window has just a day left and Manchester United are yet to sign a defender. With reports linking United to several defenders in the recent weeks, The Sun added another defender in their shortlist for the deadline day. The Sun reported that Marquinhos has been targeted strongly by Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal. Few days ago it was reported that Manchester United will seal Aleksandar Dragovic deal for £15million before the end of transfer window, but recent reports have not updated on his status. PSG defender Marquinhos would cost around £35million and reports claimed that United have offered them that amount yesterday. Marquinhos is not a regular player due to the presence of duo Brazilian Thiago Silva and David Luiz. He has made 17 appearances for the Ligue one side in all competitions so far this season. The 20-year-old who is tipped to be a future star joined the French side from Roma for a fee around £26million in 2013. The player is likely to leave the club as he sees a better future in England but PSG would only allow him to leave if they sign a right replacement. Columnist: Stevan Jones Share !
