Verratti Tells PSG He Will Leave - Report

"I won't return to Paris, I want to go to Barcelona." Marco Verratti has reportedly sent this clear message to the PSG hierarchy
Marco Verratti has reportedly told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave after holding transfer talks with Barcelona.

The Italian has been strongly linked with a move to the Nou Camp this summer. And it’s believed Verratti met with a Barcelona chief in Ibiza during the week to discuss a deal.

But the one stumbling block is PSG, with the money-rich French giants reluctant to lose any of their best players.

However, Spanish paper Sport claims Verratti will kick up a fuss to get his way and has already told the club he wants out.

Whether PSG accept the midfielder’s demand remains to be seen, but he will surely command a huge transfer fee should he leave the Parc des Princes.

It’s reckoned that Barcelona would have to break the world transfer record with a £132million bid in order to secure Verratti’s signature.

And the player himself is demanding at least £170,000-a-week wages, making him one of the top earners in European football.

But Barca are reeling from a poor season which saw them miss out on La Liga and the Champions League, and new boss Ernesto Valverde is sure to be backed in the transfer window by his board.
