Marquinhos: Attracting plenty of interest, but no bids as yet

The 19-year-old shone in the 2012/13 campaign, his first in European football since completing a switch from Corinthians.

His ability, and potential to get even better, has been noted by top sides across the continent.

Free-spending outfits such as Barcelona, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have been credited with holding an interest in the teenage centre-half.

Marquinhos is, however, tied to a long-term contract at Roma and no transfer discussions have been held.

His representative, Giuliano Bertolucci, told Sky Sport Italia: "It's a natural thing that there is a lot of interest in him, but at the moment no official offers have arrived. Roma have not allowed us to talk to anyone.

"The player has a contract for four seasons with Roma and he will surely stay

"I can confirm I was in Barcelona, but it happened a long time ago and Marquinhos is not my only client."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
