Barca increase Marquinhos offer

Barcelona are determined to poach Marquinhos from Roma and reportedly increased their offer to €32m.

The Blaugrana’s interest in the Brazilian centre-back is well known and are rumoured to be in a bidding war with Paris Saint-Germain.

It was already rumoured earlier today that the two clubs had raised their bids to €25m, but it was still not enough to tempt Roma into a sale.

According to Sky Sport Italia this afternoon, the Blaugrana have stepped it up again with a huge proposal worth €32m.

It would be incredible business for the Giallorossi, who signed the 19-year-old from Corinthians for a total of just €5m.

There are also reports that Marquinhos' agent is in Spain to discuss terms with Barcelona.
