Manchester United to battle Arsenal for defensive duo

Manchester United have not given up in their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos. Recently, Goal reported that the Brazilian defender has agreed on personal terms with Barcelona.

However, according to the Sun, United and Arsenal are still hopeful in their pursuit of the 21-year-old. Marquinhos is behind his compatriots Thiago Silva and David Luiz in the pecking order at PSG and has struggled for first-team opportunities during his time with the Paris club.

He has previously stated his desire to leave the Ligue 1 champions in his quest for regular playing time. PSG signed Marquinhos three years ago for £25million from AS Roma.

The Sun has also linked Manchester United with a move for Hull City left-back Andy Robertson. The 22-year-old has emerged as one of the top defensive prospects in English football following his move from Dundee United in 2014.

Arsenal are also reportedly keeping an eye on the Scotland international, but the report claims that the Red Devils are currently the favourites to sign the player in the summer. Robertson is valued at £15 million by the Tigers.
