Despite the strained relationship between Real Madrid and PSG, the French champions are considering a summer raid for Los Blancos’ young defender Rafa Marin, reports MARCA.

It is no secret that Real Madrid and PSG do not see eye to eye due to the fallout from the former’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe over the past couple of years.

Les Parisiens’ president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has constantly voiced concerns against the Super League project spearheaded by Florentino Perez, adding more friction to the relationship.

Despite that, it seems like PSG are considering making a move for one of Real Madrid’s most talented young prospects in Rafa Marin.

The 20-year-old has been at La Fabrica since 2016 when he joined from the Sevilla youth academy. Having progressed steadily through the ranks, the centre-back has become a mainstay in Raul Gonzalez’s Castilla outfit, impressing with his solid displays.

While Marin is yet to make his first-team debut for Los Merengues, he is knocking on Carlo Ancelotti’s doors, having scored two goals in seven games for Castilla this term.

But given the plethora of defensive options in the first-team setup, the pathway for the Spaniard is not easy and PSG want to capitalise on the situation.

As per the report, the Ligue 1 champions rate Marin very highly and believe that Real Madrid are not making the best use of his vast potential. They have conveyed the same message to the youngster’s camp as they consider a summer swoop for him.

Marin has always prioritised staying at Real Madrid, but the report states that he is flattered by the interest from PSG and is tempted by the possibility of the transfer.

The 20-year-old has a release clause worth €30 million in his contract which the Parisian giants can trigger to sign him. However, the operation is expected to be difficult, which is why they have started laying the groundwork for the deal as early as October.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
