AS Roma are battling to keep hold of young defender Marquinhos ahead of the summer market.

Leggo says Manchester City and Barcelona are competing for the 18 year-old Brazilian and are actively in talks with Roma and the player's camp about a deal.

Marquinhos' current four-year deal is worth less than €1 million-a-year.

Both City and Barca have made it clear they'll offer Marquinhos four times that amount to take him away from Roma and are also willing to go to €25 million to convince the Giallorossi to sell.
