The young Brazilian is already among the best defenders at the moment. His ball playing abilities and speed make him an ideal candidate for Barca’s passing game. The Catalans have been huge admirers of the defender, chasing him ever since his Roma days. Still 22, Marquinhos has a long way to go in the modern football and has the potential to become the very best. Barca’s appeal may be enough to convince the Brazilian to leave Parc De Paris. He is often identified as a natural heir to Carlos Puyol, and a backline of Pique and Marquinhos could be a nightmare for strikers.
