PSG: Marquinhos will extend without hesitation

For a few seconds, her face relaxed slightly. Annoyed and annoyed by the performance of his team, who suffered their first defeat of the season in Lance, Marquinhos smiles slightly at the very end of the evening, on Sunday, in front of the journalists grouped in the mixed zone. Then it is not about commenting on the results of his training, but about discussing his possible extension of the contract with PSG.

The captain’s response is brief, but confirms the positive development of the negotiations in this file. “We have made good progress. I hope everything happens as soon as possible,” explains the 28-year-old Brazilian defender, who is linked to PSG until 2024.

A few details remain to be settled, such as the length of his new contract, which should be extended until 2026 or 2027, but the case is well underway and should be finalized soon after much discussion. The first negotiations were initiated by Leonardo a few months ago. In recent weeks, they have finally felt the rise under the influence of his successor Luis Campos, seeking to secure team leaders Christophe Galtier.

“I’m trying to get back in shape as soon as possible”

With the extension of Marco Verratti’s contract until 2026, PSG are preparing to reaffirm their trust in another historic player very attached to the club. He has never hidden that he is ready to defend this jersey for the rest of his career, while the leaders respect him and love to praise his professionalism, which he walks on a daily basis.

The desire to extend Marquinhos’ loan is nonetheless a strong signal at a time when his career is in serious turmoil. Having arrived in Paris in 2013 and from the height of his 386 games played, the captain has been showing a certain excitement for several months now. The centre-back’s uniformity has been replaced by an uneven game in which he has occasionally shown shortcomings (lack of shot, depth control) that were evident on March 9 against Real Madrid.

World Cup, a real nightmare

This first head kick was preceded by an even stronger second when Brazil was eliminated in the World Cup quarter-finals against Croatia. He left the competition with a deep scar after parrying a Croatian equalizer and missing a shot on goal, precipitating his team’s defeat. The wound is slowly healing, but Captain Marquinhos shows his confidence in his return to the fore.

“Our life as a football player is like that. There are many emotions, beautiful and less beautiful, he admitted. Since I was 8 years old, I know how it happens. Experience gives you even more intelligence to deal with those moments. It was a very difficult World Cup. Two or three days after the withdrawal were difficult. Over time, with the support of work and family, everything passes. Today I feel better and better and try to find my form as soon as possible. It is on the field that we feel best, playing and winning. “Signing a new contract with the club of his life could also be good medicine.
