Paris, July 1 (IANS) Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos has extended his contract for three seasons, the French football club announced on Saturday.

The renewal of the 23-year-old Brazilian’s contract came after the contract extension of Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and Brazilian Thiago Silva, until 2020, and Frenchman Presnel Kimpembe, until 2021, reports Efe.

“Paris Saint-Germain are delighted to announce Marquinhos has signed a three-year contract extension,” the club said in a statement on its official website.

The capital club added that the Brazilian international is now tied to PSG until 30 June 2022.

Marquinhos won three Ligue 1 titles and three Coupe de France trophies since his arrival at the French club in 2013 from Roma for 31.4 million euros ($35.8 million).

“I have always said I’m happy to play for Paris Saint-Germain, and this contract extension is further proof of my commitment to the club,” Marquinhos said after signing the extension.
