Although it has still not been formalized nor made official by PSG, the captain of the French capital club Marquinhos' contract extension has already been signed and all that is missing is the official announcement.

This is more about when, not if, the extension will be announced and celebrated, something PSG will definitely find some reprieve on after the whole drama that Lionel Messi's trip to Saudi Arabia has caused this trip, and the never-ending Christophe Galtier-sacking saga.

This has been known for several weeks and Marquinhos will continue his adventure with PSG for a few more years.

The Brazil international, currently under contract until 2024, should add three more seasons to that date thus extending his presence in the Parisian backline until June 2027, as originally reported by L'Equipe and RMC a few weeks ago.

Marquinhos arrived at PSG in 2013, just a few months after QSI took over the club, and if he completes his new deal without getting transferred he would have stayed almost 14 years in the French capital.

Marquinhos has already played the third-most games at PSG throughout the history of the club and that number will only grow larger during the next few years as he's a staple of the Parisian defense and still at the peak of his powers.

The 28-year-old center-back and captain was spotted at the Camp des Loges with a jersey emblazoned with a humongous "2027" on its back a few days ago, seemingly on his way to a photo session to accompany the note of his re-signing whenever the club decides to make it official and unveil it.

The photos and the communication are ready to be pressed along with the news of this extension, reported L'Equipe. The club is just waiting for the best time to announce it, which most probably won't happen until PSG have finally sealed their Ligue 1 title once and for all, adding to the celebrations.

As for the details of this new contract, no financial information has been leaked as of this writing, although it's hard to see a large bump in the salary of Marquinhos as the Brazilian is already one of the highest earners at his position in world football.

Marquinhos has spent most of his professional career in Paris and this is great news at least from a PR point of view. Another entirely different thing is his on-field production, which might start to go down in the next few months and years as he enters his 30s.
