Reports in the French Press claim that Leonardo could sign Marquinhos from Roma as a parting gift to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazilian director will leave the Ligue 1 champions at the end of July, but L’Equipe believe that he will travel to Rome to try and tie up a deal for the young defender.
The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Giallorossi this summer - Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been rumoured with a move, but it is now believe that Laurent Blanc’s men will secure his signature.
The Lupi are set to receive €35m for the centre-back.
