Marquinhos: Has targeted a place at the World Cup

Marquinhos completed his move to the French capital from Roma earlier in the month.

And, speaking to French paper L'Equipe, Marquinhos explained his decision: "I chose Paris Saint-Germain because of the very ambitious project. They are the up-and-coming club.

"They only have great players and I made the choice with my family and agent. It also helps that there are a lot of Brazilians there.

"I aim to make a name for myself in my new team and I arrive in order to win titles. It is my dream to play in World Cup."

The 19-year-old defender will join his new team early next week after suffering from a virus.

He added: "I got a virus earlier. I had a stomach pain and mouth infection, so I could hardly eat.

"There is nothing serious and no hepatitis as far as we could tell. I will resume training on Monday."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
