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’s €12m 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.”
