The Catalan press has done echo during the last hours of what when seeming would have been a small verbal dispute between two executive members of FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, Raül Sanllehí and Olivier Letang. As it has informed "MD", apparently the director of the PSG would have telephoned to Sanllehí for recriminarle the contacts kept during the last weeks with Marquinhos.

It fits to remember that, before it closed the signing of Samuel Umtiti, the Barcelona handled distinct options in the market of signings 2016-17 to reinforce the axis of the defence, and Marquinhos was without place to doubts one of them. The Barça negotiated directly with the player and his representative, but finally the negotiations did not finish of fructificar and the Catalan club centred in Umtiti.

To Olivier Letang did not seat him too well that andl FC Barcelona spoke directly with Marquinhos and his representative instead of with the PSG, and would have it to him recriminado by telephonically to Sanllehí, although it treats a practice of the most usual in the clubs of elite. The case is that the executive of the Barcelona would not have quiet, neither much less.

It would have answered reproaching to Olivier Letang that Paris Saint-Germain acted of the same way with Neymar Jr, arriving even to "harass" to the Brazilian star when posing him diverse meetings and follow him to Ibiza and Brazil while the footballer found enjoying of his holidays. The answer of Sanllehí would have served of cut to Letang. In spite of the supposed discussion, the reality is that finally the "secret contacts" of both clubs by Marquinhos and Neymar no fructificaron.

The central Brazilian has finish remaining -for the moment- in Paris Saint-Germain, whereas Neymar Jr already has closed all the fringes of his renewal of agreement with the FC Barcelona, signing it when it return of his holidays, in theory before contesting the Olympic games of River 2016.
