Marquinhos may consider PSG exit

The centre-back has found playing time difficult to come by in the French capital and says he may have to evaluate his options at the end of the season

Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos says he may be forced to consider his future at the Parc des Princes if he fails to cement a first-team place.

The Brazil international joined the Ligue 1 champions in July 2013 from Roma, but has failed to become a regular starter, with compatriots David Luiz and Thiago Silva PSG's favoured centre-back pairing.

Marquinhos has made just 12 league appearances this term, starting only seven, and Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly monitoring his situation.

The 21-year-old insists he wants to stay and fight for a place in the PSG team, but may consider his position at the end of the season.

"Like everyone else, I always want to be a part of the starting line-up," he told JDD.

"But we all must respect the choices of the coach and management.

"I will continue to work to get my place. But it's true there will come a moment where I am older. You cannot just get used to sitting on the bench.

"There are six months left for PSG to win titles. After that, we'll see what happens."
