PSG’s director of sport was in Milan to meet with Donato Di Campli, agent of Marco Verratti during the time of year when the summer transfer window begins to open more vividly. The midfielder’s agent reportedly has told Antero Henrique what he thinks. Verratti wants to go to Barça, a thought reiterated by his agent. The problem is that the French club believes the midfield director is one of their greatest assets. For this reason, the sports director’s response was clear, “For us, Verratti is not for sale.”
It is difficut to try and ignore the player’s offer of 10 million EUR net per year that Barcelona could guarantee him. It has already been suggested the possibility of a contract renewal at a higher salary, but it is not enough. Marco wants to join Barça to make a run for the Champions League and to confront a more prominent league than Ligue 1 (he has never played in the Italian Serie A) and to make a definite leap of quality in his career. These are all prospects that PSG can not guarantee him today. That’s why the Barça waits, anticipating the coup. Di Campli also met in Milan for the 18-year-old midfielder of Pescara, Mamadou Coulibaly.
