In addition, there is growing “confidence” that an agreement can be reached Global Sports substantiation of these claims.

“Let’s talk and see what the possibilities are if there is a way out,” explains Ceni, the legendary free-kick goalkeeper-turned-head-coach.

“I’ve heard the rumours, I’ve read things. I’ve seen that there’s supposedly a chance he’ll leave Sao Paulo.”

Arsenal are in talks to sign Marquinhos from Sao Paulo

The former Brazil U17 international recently signed a five-year contract with Sao Paulo. But according to Lance, such a deal violates FIFA regulations. Due to Marquinhos’ age, the report adds, the maximum contract length that Sao Paulo could legally offer was just three years.

“If Marquinhos leaves, I think the possibility (of signing a replacement) opens up,” adds Ceni. “But we have to see the financial conditions of the club. What you want is one thing, reality is another.”

A skilled right winger who can also play down the left, Marquinhos failed to score and managed just one assist in 21 Brazilian Serie A games in the 2021 season. He did, however, impress in the Copa Libertadores.

And Ceni believes the teenager still has a lot of room for improvement, especially when it comes to making an impression right from the start of games.

“Marquinhos helps us, especially when he comes on in the second half,” says the coach. “He was outstanding in the last 20 or 30 minutes. When he starts the game, he doesn’t perform that well.”
