Marquinhos calms Barca talk

Brazilian defender Marquinhos has committed his future to Roma after playing down links with Barcelona.

The teenager seemed to open the door to a Nou Camp transfer earlier this week, but he’s cooled suggestions of an imminent capital exit.

“My words were perhaps misinterpreted,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “I’m a Roma player, I have a four-year contract here and I’m happy.

“I leave certain situations in the hands of my agent. I’m always the last to know about these things anyway.

“I’m just focused on training and playing the game.”
