After making a name for himself at his first club, Corinthians, Marcos Aoás Corrêa - also known as Marquinhos - travelled to Europe to join AS Roma in 2012. And it took less than a year for the promising defender to cross the Alps.
Approached at 19 years old by Paris Saint-Germain, the young Brazilian quickly made his mark as a pillar of the club from the capital, as well as with the Brazil national side. A true rock in defence, who is equally capable of plying his trade in midfield, ‘Marqui’ quickly won over the City of Lights with his strength of character, his loyalty and maturity.
Cherry on the cake, he is one of the most prolific defenders in the club’s history. A flawless vice-captain alongside Thiago Silva, he picked up the captain’s armband from his fellow countryman during the summer of 2020 and has proven his status season after season – an unconditional love for Paris Saint-Germain that has seen him extend his contract until 2027.
