One of the most highly-regarded talents in Europe has hinted that he may be looking for a new club in the future.

Paris Saint-Germain center-back Marquinhos has struggled to find minutes in the starting lineup, stuck behind Thiago Silva and David Luiz on the pecking order.

Manchester United has been linked to a possible move for the 21-year-old, and when asked about those reports, Marquinhos said he will “see what happens” at PSG, as he is not fond of sitting on the bench.

It’s my pleasure. It means that we work well.

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

The Brazilian international has only started seven matches for PSG this season, who currently have a 19-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

United has been in the market for a center-back to partner with Chris Smalling, as Phil Jones has struggled with injuries forcing Daley to play out of position in the middle of the defense.

Marquinhos’ 2013 move from Roma to PSG cost the French club nearly $35 million, which at the time was a record transfer fee for a teenager. Since then, that record has been broken twice in the transfers of Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial, both to Manchester United.
