Marco Verratti could quite possibly end up leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season, his agent has revealed.
Verratti is, at present, not only one of the best midfielders in the world, but also amongst the most sought-after ones. Top clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid have already expressed their interest in signing the 24-year-old, but the player has so far been inseparable from PSG.
However, these aforementioned European powerhouses are likely to enter into a bidding war for Marco Verratti in the summer, following the recent comments made by the Italy international’s agent, Donato Di Campli.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Di Campli hinted that his world-class client could end up parting ways with PSG at the end of this season, and join a club where he can achieve some guaranteed European success.
Di Campli was quoted as saying (via ESPN): “The situation is very complicated. He (Verratti) has a very good contract until 2021. He wants to win things and PSG, as they are, cannot win. He has been in Paris for five years and now he needs to consider whether he wants to earn a lot without winning or earn and become a champion.
“It is not about the money. Whoever wants to buy him is going to have to pay a lot, because one thing is for certain – if he leaves PSG, it will be to join a top European club. There are some top Italian clubs but I have my doubts Italy will be his final destination. Spain, the Premier League or the Bundesliga? A top European club.
“We have not yet seen the true Verratti. He is only 24 and he is hardly playing in the perfect surroundings.”
However, considering the fact that Verratti recently signed a contract with PSG that lasts until 2021, any interested party will have to make a humongous offer to convince the Ligue 1 giants to let go of their prized midfield maestro.
