Marquinhos to fight for PSG future, Salvatore Sirigu unsure of stay
Brazilian defender Marquinhos says he is happy at Paris Saint-Germain for now but goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu is still unsure about whether he will remain at the club this month.
Both Marquinhos, 21, and Sirigu, 28, have been mainly used as squad players this season as the club coasted through their Champions League group and are already 19 points clear in Ligue 1.
PSG manager Laurent Blanc hinted last week that some players could leave during the January transfer window. But Marquinhos, who has been linked with Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United in the past, says he will not be one of them just yet.

"Like everyone else, I'm always thinking about being included in the starting XI," he told Le Journal du Dimanche. "But you have to respect the decision of the coach and the staff.
"I'll continue to work in order to get my place. But it's true that there will come a time where I will want more. "You can't always get used to being on the bench. There are six months left [in the season] to win silverware and to try to become a starter. After that we'll see what happens."
Meanwhile, Sirigu was once again asked about his plans after starting in PSG's 1-0 Coupe de France victory over fourth division side Wasquehal on Sunday.
The Italy international has rarely featured this season following the arrival of Kevin Trapp and he has already said he is open to offers that would help him secure his place for Euro 2016.
When asked on Sunday if he would stay in Paris until the end of the season, Sirigu told Eurosport that his future is still uncertain.
"I don't know -- the transfer window is open," he said. "For the moment, I'm trying to keep myself ready for when I'm called upon like today. Afterwards we'll see what will be the best for me, for the club and for everyone."
