Man Utd have a battle on their hands if they want to land Roma duo Erik Lamela and Marquinhos in the summer.

La Liga giants Barcelona are threatening to scupper a deal, as they go about firming up their transfer plans.

Lamela has been on City’s radar too, but interest appears to have cooled in recent weeks.

Sir Alex Ferguson wants to add more creativity to his midfield, and Lamela could fit the bill.

Italian football site Forza Italian Football claims Roma have already rejected a £21.5m bid from Barca for Marquinhos as well as a £30m bid for Lamela.

They also note that Lamela and Marquinhos are contracted with Roma until 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Lamela is enjoying a fine breakout season for Roma, having netted 11 goals in 21 appearances.

Marquinhos has clocked up 20 appearances for the Serie A outfit.
