Manchester United and Arsenal set to do battle for 21-year-old defender

MarquinhosThe Arsenal and Manchester United fans who regularly pop into the Transfer Tavern have a fierce rivalry with each other, with the two great clubs having many strong battles down the years.

It seems that the two clubs might be about to go head-to-head for a player in the summer, with both eyeing up a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The Brazilian central defender was reportedly unhappy to have been on the bench for Wednesday night’s Champions League contest with Manchester City, with the player now open to a move away from the Parisian giants.

The 21-year-old was signed by PSG for a fee of £25 million and it is anticipated that the French giants will want to make a hefty profit on the defender, should they opt to sell him.

One Manchester United fan has overheard the landlord chatting about the news and he thinks the Brazilian would be a superb signing for United, claiming that the club desperately need to recruit a world class defender if they are to get back into contention for major silverware.

Manchester United and Arsenal fans, would you welcome Marquinhos to your club? What do you know about the youngster?
