Chelsea to hijack Manchester United move for Marquinhos?

Chelsea could be prepared to rival Manchester United for the signing of Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Marquinhos, according to a report in the press.

Chelsea could be prepared to hijack Manchester United's proposed summer move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos, according to a report in the press.

United are thought to have been tracking the Brazilian centre-back for the best part of a year, with the Daily Star now suggesting that Jose Mourinho may look to rival Louis van Gaal for the player's signature.

It is believed that the Parisian outfit value Marquinhos at around £40m, while Chelsea have already made clear their intentions to one day find a replacement for John Terry.

Marquinhos joined PSG from Roma in 2013 for a fee thought to be in the region of £27m.
