Marquinhos or Vermaelen to Barca?

Reports in Spain suggest Barcelona will choose between signing Marquinhos from Paris Saint-Germain or Arsenal’s Thomas Vermaelen.

Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo claim Barca have whittled down their centre-back options to the pair, with Marquinhos as plan A and Vermaelen the alternative.

But PSG are reluctant to sell Marquinhos, despite signing David Luiz to partner Thiago Silva, while Barca would face competition for Vermaelen from Manchester United and Liverpool.

It was suggested this week that Barca could return to Liverpool for Daniel Agger, but MD add Barca have said that isn’t the case.
