After more than a decade in Paris, being one of the first signings that Qatar made to design its megaproject, Marco Verratti has decided to leave PSG in the summer. The club, in turn, had put him on the market and will listen to offers for the Italian, whose performance this year has been irregular and the ultras, in addition, pointed to him as one of the main culprits for the poor sporting results during this season.
After the serious insults dedicated to him by the ultras, who gathered last week in front of the PSG headquarters, Verratti began to consider his future in the French capital. Until then, the midfielder was untouchable for Al Khelaïfi, who even in 2017, when the player asked to sign for Barcelona, ”forced” him to post a video on the club’s official social networks asking the fans for forgivenessto later be reinstated in the dynamics of the first team.
As reported by RMC Sport, Verratti has Real Madrid as an ideal destination. His friendship with Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he met at PSG and with whom he speaks continuously, is another of the reasons why he would be seduced by swapping Paris for Madrid. However, the whites have already fixed Bellingham as his priority for midfield and they have closed the door on him before a hypothetical transfer.
Italy, his country, and Saudi Arabia, which is willing to bathe him in gold, are other alternatives that Verratti is considering. At PSG they regret his poor hygiene and his irregular performance, which has indirectly sent him to the starting gate. His salary, 12 million euros gross, can be an impediment for any European club that tries to sign him, so it will not be easy to sell him in the next summer market. The option of Real Madrid, the one that really attracts the player, is very remote right now.
