Marquinhos: Tied down to Roma deal

The Brazilian centre-half has emerged as one of the club's star performers this season, having joined from Corinthians last summer.

Barcelona and Manchester City are amongst those to have been linked in recent weeks, but Roma insist that Marquinhos is committed to them for the next four years.

"The boy has a four-year contract with us," Roma general manager Franco Baldini told Sky Sport Italia. "Therefore, there is no meeting set up with his agents.

"There is no urgency in discussing new terms with the player. We could do, but only at a more advanced stage."

Marquinhos himself insisted over the weekend just how happy he was with life in the Eternal City.

"I am living a wonderful time here," he said.

He insists that Corinthians should not be criticised for selling him for what now appears to be a bargain fee of just €3milllion.

"It is easy to say that Corinthians made an error, but at the time it was good for all parties," he said.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
