According to reports, Thomas Tuchel has asked the Chelsea board to bring Marquinhos from PSG. The German coach is eager to reunite with the Brazilian and has identified him as their top summer prospect.
Despite Chelsea's success, Thomas Tuchel wants to improve his defence, according to a report in Sunday World. The manager is looking for a centre-back and has Marquinhos at the top of his wish list.
Marquinhos, on the other hand, has three years left on his PSG contract and the Ligue 1 club has no intention of selling him. The Brazilian is regarded as their defensive rock, and a transfer to Stamford Bridge seems impossible.
Chelsea has performed admirably since Thomas Tuchel took over, but there is still plenty to play for. The Blues are in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals tonight, hosting Real Madrid. Chelsea is now vying for a top-four finish in the Premier League and will be looking for as many victories as possible.
Thomas Tuchel has already stated that he would only advise which players to sign and that the Chelsea board will handle the rest. The German has also said that if the club cannot obtain the players he desires, it will not bother him.
