Ligue 1 champions PSG are reportedly interested in signing Rafa Marin from Real Madrid, with Luis Campos keen on landing him.

According to a report by Spanish publication MARCA, Rafa Marin is the subject of interest from Paris Saint-Germain over a possible move in a 2023 summer transfer window. The Real Madrid defensive prospect has come as an express request from PSG advisor Luis Campos.

Rafa Marin began his youth career at Alcolea, where he spent four years before moving to Centro Historico. A short stint with Sevilla followed before he landed at Real Madrid in 2016. And the 20-year-old has progressed considerably at La Fabrica in the last half a decade.

The Spanish defensive prospect is yet to make his first-team debut for Real Madrid but has featured regularly for the reserve side in the past year. Marin has turned out 37 times for Real Madrid Castilla, chipping in with three goals. And his progress has captured the attention of Paris Saint-Germain.

The interest from PSG stems from the advancing years of Sergio Ramos. The former Real Madrid captain is well into his thirties and approaching the end of his glittering career. Furthermore, Presnel Kimpembe’s injury has forced Christophe Galtier to deploy Danilo Pereira as a centre-back this season.

So PSG will have to invest in a central defender in 2023, with several players emerging on their radar. Arsenal centre-back William Saliba is reportedly a top target for Les Parisiens. Meanwhile, the Ligue 1 champions continue to pursue Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar. And Rafa Marin has now emerged on their radar.

Luis Campos likes Marin’s qualities and has asked PSG to pursue the 20-year-old. The Real Madrid defensive prospect has a bright future ahead of him. And a move to Parc des Princes might be in his best interests, considering Real Madrid’s defensive unit is stacked.

Marin will unlikely get an opportunity to become a regular for Real Madrid anytime soon. And with PSG showing keen interest in the 20-year-old, it will be intriguing to see if they follow up with an offer. For now, Marin is one of the central defensive targets for Les Parisiens.
