Chelsea to offer Brazilian move to Stamford Bridge as Rudiger replacement
Chelsea are interested in a deal for PSG star Marquinhos, with reports that Antonio Rudiger is all set to depart the club and move to Juventus
The Chelsea defender is out of contract at the end of this season and despite the fact that the club do not want to let him leave the club, the Italian giants want him to lead their defence into a new era.
Their plan for him to ultimately take over from club legend Giorgio Chiellini as the heartbeat of the back line is an added incentive, and reports have suggested Rudiger has already been offered a deal worth around £5.5million-a-season over five years to tempt the athletic Germany centre-back.
And that has led to rumours that we are eyeing up potential replacements for the German, and Marquinhos has been a player that they have been keen on for more than a few transfer window snow.
The 27-year-old has two years to run on his deal in the French capital, and, according to L’Equipe, is no closer to signing a new contract with his club.
It is understood that we have been keeping a close eye on Marquinhos’ situation at PSG, and are prepared to make an offer for the defender as soon as they receive the green light from their new owners.
However, the Brazilian defender supposedly wants a significant increase in his salary – currently thought to be around £250k-per-week – and it is unclear that the new owners will be willing to pay that amount of cash.
Marquinhos is a top-class defender that will be snapped up by a massive club should he actually come onto the market, so this one will be interesting to keep an eye on as it seems that he does not want to leave PSG
