He's one of the best defenders in the world, but at £112m, is Marquinhos really worth it?

After a string of rock hard leaders at the back (think Staam, Rio, Vidic et al) Man Utd have showed a distinct lack of strength in defence since the departure of Fergie. The fans know it, and Van Gaal knows it, which is why the Dutchman is rumoured to be in the market for PSG centre back Marquinhos.

The Brazilian, bought by the French club from Roma for £36m, won't come cheap. In fact, PSG are said to be whistling to the tune of £112m. It's a steep sum, but in the modern game it's not unthinkable. Marquinhos is, however, just another name in the long list of defenders linked with a move to Old Trafford, and certainly won't be the only player in his position available in the summer, so he'll have to shine something special for the remainder of the season to make LVG stump up the cash. Time will tell.

Man Utd fans, have a look at his highlights reel and let us know whether you think he'd be worth the money...
