Barcelona offer €32m for Marquinhos - report
Barcelona have offered 32 million euros for Roma's promising defender Marquinhos, according to reports in Italian press.
Sky Sport Italia claims that Barcelona have upped their offer for Marquinhos to €32m as the original €25m offer was turned down.
The Spanish club's main target is Paris Saint-Germain's Thiago Silva but the French club are not willing to sell him. Marquinhos has thus emerged as an option for Barcelona, but PSG are also interested in the highly-rated defender.
Roma paid only €5m to sign Marquinhos from Corinthians last year, the 19-year old defender quickly became a key player for the Italian club, attracting interest from other clubs.
Besides Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, Chelsea's defender David Luiz is also among the centrebacks shortlisted by Barcelona.
