Marco Verratti has reportedly told his agent to listen to offers ahead of an exciting summer transfer window.
Blaise Matuidi and Verratti were alleged to have been seen at a private nightclub in Paris with Pop star Rihanna just 48 hours before PSG’S Barcelona Champions League humiliation.
However, the French club have denied the rumours but now Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Verratti wants to leave the club at the end of this season.
Verratti’s agent spoke in Italy about the situation: “The French press should be on their feet and thanking him for playing with PSG. Marco has contract until 2021 and the president affirmed his willingness to build a great team. But it’s also true that my phone keeps ringing…” Donato di Campli said to Premium Sport.
The Manchester United and Barcelona target is reported to have informed his representative Donato Di Campli to listen to suitable offers.
But PSG director of football Patrick Kluivert is confident the Italian will stay at the club. Kluivert said: “Verratti is the cornerstone of our midfield and things will remain that way. He is not going anywhere this year.”
Reports in Spain earlier claimed Barcelona were ready to break the bank to tempt £70 million rated Veratti. The La Liga champions have been keeping tabs on the Italian midfielder’s progress over the past few seasons as the search for a long-term successor to Andres Iniesta still going on.
The 24-year-old Italian literally ran the show in PSG’s 4-0 Champions League destruction of Barcelona last month. That extraordinary performance even prompted Iniesta to admit that the PSG midfielder one day may become his successor.
