According to information recounted on Le 10 Sport, FC Barcelona wizard Andrés Iniesta considers Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verrati his heir. The source is Verratti’s teammate, Blaise Matuidi, who spoke with radio station France Bleu.

Matuidi claims that when Verratti was down, he told Iniesta his midfield mate was the Spaniard’s heir. And Iniesta agreed, saying, "yes, that is what I think."

Barcelona have been trying to pry Verratti away from Paris for a long time. The Italian maestro was instrumental in PSG’s 4-0 demolition of Barcelona.
