Man City boss Mancini would love to sign Barcelona defender Marquinhos

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini are pushing to land AS Roma defender Marquinhos.

The Sun says Mancini faces competition from Barcelona for the 18-year-old Brazilian defender.

And the Italian - who is also waiting for news on his swoop for Shakhtar Donetsk's Samba star Fernandinho - admits it will be tough to persuade Roma to do business.

He said: "Marquinhos I really like - but I do not think that Roma are willing to sell.

"With just two signings next year, Roma can win the league title."
