Marquinhos agent meets Roma

The agent of Marquinhos held talks with Roma on Wednesday as rumours of an imminent switch to Paris Saint-Germain gather pace.

Roberto Calenda arrived at the club’s pre-season training retreat of Riscone di Brunico to meet with Giallorosso CEO Italo Zanzi.

The capital club are expected to cash in on the 19-year-old who caught the eye in his first Serie A campaign last season.

Manchester United and Barcelona have been paired with the centre-back, but it is being claimed that PSG are ready to pay up to €35m for the Brazilian.

The South American, who left Corinthians last August, cost the Stadio Olimpico outfit less than €5m in total.

Marquinhos appeared in 26 League games in 2012-13.
