Man City go head-to-head with Barcelona for Roma defender Marquinhos

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.
