In a highly anticipated move, Marquinhos has committed his future to Paris Saint-Germain for the foreseeable future with his new contract linking him to PSG until June 2028.

The club confirmed the contract extension on Friday, solidifying the Brazil international and long-time PSG defender's continued presence in the City of Light.

Marquinhos, who joined PSG in the summer of 2013, has become an integral part of the team. Following Thiago Silva's departure in the summer of 2020, the 29-year-old assumed the captain's armband, assuming a leadership role within the Rouge & Bleu.

Originally set to remain at the club until 2024, Marquinhos has now extended his stay for an additional four seasons, keeping him at PSG until June 2028.

Expressing his joy and pride, Marquinhos shared his thoughts on the club's official website, stating, "This contract extension is a very special moment for me. Paris Saint-Germain has always shown great confidence in me, and I have immense confidence in this club as well. I firmly believe that together, we will continue to achieve great things in the years to come."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi echoed the Brazilian's sentiments, expressing his delight at the extension of Marquinhos' contract. "We are thrilled that Marquinhos has decided to extend his journey with the Paris Saint-Germain family. I remember when he joined the club at the age of 19. Since day one, he has demonstrated unwavering dedication and a winning mentality, always fighting for the Paris Saint-Germain shirt. His exceptional talent, experience, and commitment to the club are remarkable. I have no doubt that we will celebrate numerous successes together as Marquinhos' story continues to unfold at PSG."

With an impressive 405 appearances, Marquinhos currently holds the distinction of being the third most-capped player in PSG's history, trailing only Marco Verratti (413) and Jean-Marc Pilorget (435).

Marquinhos' contract extension solidifies his status as a long-term member of the Rouge & Bleu, as he looks forward to scripting the next chapter of his career with the club.
