Getafe and Marseille target PAOK midfielder Mauricio

Getafe and Marseille are interested in signing PAOK midfielder Mauricio (Mauricio Jose da Silveira Junior) when his contract ends, Fichajes.com reports.

The 31-year-old has played in Greece for three years after a spell at Zenit St. Petersburg, but is out of contract on July 31.

Getafe and Marseille, who will be working with tight budgets this summer, see Mauricio as a good cut-price opportunity.

Both could offer European football, with Marseille qualifying for the Champions League and Getafe currently in a Europa League spot.

Mauricio, a deep-lying midfielder, has proven his worth at PAOK and was part of their 2018-10 title-winning side.

In total, Mauricio has made 88 appearances during his three seasons in Thessaloniki.

Mauricio won five caps for Brazil’s under-17 side during his youth career.

He moved to Europe from Fluminense in 2009, joining Russian side Terek Grozny where he made his name.
