Manchester United and Barcelona are also in the chase for Roma centre-half Marquinhos, according to the Brazilian's agent.

Paris Saint-Germain lead the chase for 19-year-old, who impressed his first season in Europe following a move from Corinthians, and Corriere dello Sport reported on Monday that the French champions had reached a €35 million agreement with Roma.

But agent Roberto Calenda has told Sky Italia that a move was in the offing, but stressed that PSG were not the only club courting his client.

"Roma has told us that there is the possibility of a sale, and we'll respect the decision they take," he said.

"There are offers from PSG, Barcelona and Manchester United, and it's possible the club accepts one of those."
