Marquinhos was considered one of the most promising youngsters at Corinthians during his tenure there. Renowned for his versatility, Marquinhos joined the Corinthians ranks at the age of eight in 2002. Having amassed ten years of experience in the club's youth squads, in 2010 he was called up by the Brazil under-17 squad. In 2012, Marquinhos was a part of the Corinthians squad for the Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior 2012. He made six official league appearances for the senior Corinthians side.
In July 2012, Marquinhos was signed by Roma in the Italian Serie A from Corinthians. He made his debut on 16 September in a 3–2 loss against Bologna. Following impressive early season performances, Marquinhos solidified his place in the starting XI alongside former Corinthians teammate and Brazilian Leandro Castán in central defence, demoting former starter Nicolás Burdisso to the substitute's bench.
"I am delighted to be joining Paris Saint-Germain, a club where so many Brazilians have played and helped write the club's history."
On his official debut for the club, he scored the last goal in a 1-4 win against Olympiacos in the group stage of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League. On 22 September 2013, Marquinhos made his Ligue 1 debut as a starter in a 1–1 draw against AS Monaco. On 2 October 2013, he scored the second goal in a 3-0 victory against Benfica.
