Marquinhos is stalling on new contract talks with PSG.
Le 10 Sport says the defender has been offered a bumper new contract by PSG. However, he has so far baulked at agreeing to any new deal.
And it's been revealed Barca are in contact with Marquinhos' relatives to again express their interest in taking him to Spain.
However, there remains a feeling inside the player's camp that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is determined not to lose the centre-half.
