FC BARCELONA OFFERS 25M€ FOR AC ROMA DEFENDER MARQUINHOS

According to Italian paper "Il Corriere dello Sport", FC Barcelona has made a 25M€ offer for AC Roma Central Defender Marquinhos. This story has been picked up locally by Spanish Sports media & they add that the Italian Club has rejected the offer, apart from others like Manchester United whom are interested in their forward Erik Lamela.

The interesting news on Marquinhos is that the defender is only 19 years of age & is a Football promise. The player has been at Roma a year & has become a vital piece of his team scheme of play. The Brazilian is winning fame for his powerful physical performances  & good defensive positioning on the field.

These characteristics have attracted FC Barcelona which is looking for young class defenders to replace veterans like Carles Puyol. Apart from this, the youth of Marquinhos allows him to quickly learn the "Barça way of play". Although the first offer has been rejected, we may see an insistent Barça & a determined Marquinhos forcing things to advance. Until then we will keep an eye open for developments & if there is news we´ll inform.
