‘Barca bid over €40m for Marquinhos’

The President of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has claimed Barcelona made an offer of more than €40m for centre-back Marquinhos.

Al-Khelaifi made the claim in an interview with Le Parisien with his comments regarding Barca published by Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo.

“We received an offer from Barca of over €40m for Marquinhos,” he revealed.

“Our purpose is not to do business but to build a great club with great players. If we were to do business we would have sold three or four players this summer, but that’s not my philosophy.

“Financial Fair Play doesn’t prevent us signing great players. Moreover, great players are already here.”
