With Real Madrid continuing to plot its assault on the transfer market this summer, Marco Verratti has been widely touted as a possible addition to add depth in midfield.
The Italian starlet, who has spent the last season working under Carlo Ancelotti at PSG, is currently away at the European Under-21 Championship, but has sought to brush off the talk of a move. “I heard about Ancelotti a few days ago and I think he’s going to leave. If this is the case, I’ll be happy for him because he’d be going to a big club. But my future isn’t tied to the coach’s. I am very happy in Paris; we’ll see what happens in the future, but for now I want to stay at PSG”, he claimed.
Verratti’s agent, Donato di Campli, has acknowledged Real’s interest in the youngster: “Next week I will meet with PSG to talk about his future. Real Madrid is interested”, he told ‘SportMediaset’.
