Marquinhos could be used as part of a deal that will see Dani Alves move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.
Qatari-based network beIn Sport, who have close links to the Parisien outfit, have revealed that the young centre-back will come to Camp Nou this summer, with the full-back going the other way.
The Blaugrana were interested in Marquinhos last summer, but missed out as Laurent Blanc’s men shelled out €35m to sign him from Roma.
But the station claims that the Ligue 1 champions are now willing to let the 20-year-old leave in order to get Alves.
