It seems before bringing back our very own David Luiz, who has been outstanding for Chelsea this season, Chelsea tried to sign another Brazilian defender.
The agent of PSG’s Brazilian defender Marquinhos revealed a £52 million bid was submitted for Marquinhos last summer but PSG had no intention of selling the defender.
“The president of PSG never wanted to negotiate a transfer, neither with Barcelona nor with anyone,” Giuliano Bertolucci, the agent of Marquinhos, told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
“Last summer there was a €60 million (£52 million) proposal for Marquinhos and he rejected it.”
French media outlet Le 10 Sport claim the £52 million last summer for Marquinhos came from Chelsea.
Are you happy to have David Luiz back at Chelsea or would you have preferred his fellow Brazilian Marquinhos?
