Verratti committed to PSG

Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti isn’t distracted by the recurring speculation that he remains a transfer target for Juventus.

Juve tried to sign the player last summer, but the Italian champions refused to meet Pescara’s12m asking price.

Today, the Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that the Old Lady could net him in a deal that sees Arturo Vidal head in the other direction.

However, speaking with the same newspaper, Verratti underlined that his immediate future will be in Ligue 1.

“The fact that a great club like Juventus want me is something that makes me proud,” he stated. “However, and I repeat, I’m happy here.

“I have no intention  of changing clubs, at least while PSG consider me as part of this great project.

“Obviously, if I was to leave then I’d like a return to Italy with a big club like Juve, but also like Milan or Inter.

“I’m still and will remain a Pescara fan, but I did like Juventus as a child. Alessandro Del Piero was my idol.”
