The Brazil international has committed to the French champions until 2024, a two-year extension to his current deal.

The club confirmed the extension on Monday, calling him “one of the most successful players in the history of Paris Saint-Germain”.

Marquinhos said: “Paris and PSG have every argument for me to stay here and extend my contract.

“It’s an ambitious club that still wants to do great things, making football and club history.

“Then there’s the city side, the family side. My family is really very, very good here.

“I really feel at home here, I’ve got everything I need right here, and so that’s why the choice is quick.

“This is the seventh season. Six-and-a-half years since I signed, I look back and see how much PSG and I have accomplished.

“We’ve done great things. I think it’s really a very special club. We just have to keep living this beautiful story together.”
