While the Arsenal and Manchester United fans who flood into the Transfer Tavern on the weekends often share a (reasonably) light hearted ferocious disagreement on matters, reports in the Sunday Mirror linking both clubs with a move for PSG defender Marquinhos has split them in even more so!
Regarded as one of the best young defenders in the game, the 21-year old is reportedly growing discontent at life in the French capital.
Much of that is said to stem from his unhappiness at largely playing out of position under Laurent Blanc, while he is thought to have been angry at being left of the side that started against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Excelling at Roma in more central areas of the backline, he’s been shifted out to the right-back position more often than not in order to accommodate the likes of David Luiz and Thiago Silva.
Both the Red Devils and the Gunners have struggled defensively this season, undermining their attempts to finish in the top four and seriously challenge for the title respectively.
Certainly, there would be room for the Brazilian international at either Old Trafford or the Emirates and he is understood to be considering his future in Paris.
