Report: Chelsea Make £55m Bid For PSG's Marco Verratti

Chelsea are desperately trying to persuade Marco Verratti to join boss Antonio Conte's quest for more silverware.
The Sun understands that the English Premier League champions have made an offer of £55m to Paris Saint-Germain for the Italy midfielder.

However, Verratti, 24, has told PSG he wants to stay in Paris and will reject the Blues' offer in a bid to improve his current deal of £120,000 a week.

Former Italy manager Conte sees Verratti as a way to increase his creative options next season.

Over the course of this season, the Blues' boss relied on N'Golo Kanté and Nemanja Matic to control possession.

But faced with the dual challenge of domestic and European football next term, Conte wants more tactical flexibility.
