Manchester United are ready to make a £60m transfer bid to sign Marquinhos from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Sport is reporting that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring the Brazilian to Old Trafford and that the Red Devils will compete with Barcelona for the signature of the 23-year-old.

However, the report states that Manchester United look likely to win the race for the Brazilian because PSG are reluctant to sell to a Champions League rival this summer.

The Spanish website says that Manchester United are ready to make a £60m offer to sign Marquinhos this summer.

The report also says that Marquinhos is set to “become one of the defensive pillars of Mourinho’s project at Old Trafford”.

It is also claimed that the player’s agent is now set to hold talks with Old Trafford chiefs ahead of a possible summer move.
