Barcelona continue their hunt for a world class midfielder, and today we see an encouraging sign from the agent of one of the top targets, Marco Verratti.
In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, the Paris Saint-Germain player’s agent, Donato Di Campli, talked about his client’s future. And he couldn’t have put it in more stark terms: “He wants to win and with PSG as they are, he cannot win.”
Woof! Do you think the 6-1 lingers in his mind?
“He’s been in Paris for five years and now has to make a decision,” Di Campli continued, “to earn a lot without winning or earn and become a champion?”
Considering PSG won Ligue 1 four times, as well as various other domestic cups, in Verratti’s time, this clearly is referencing the Champions League.
“It’s not a question of money – anyone who buys Verratti would be paying a lot,” Di Campli said. “Because at least one thing for sure – he leaves PSG, it will be for a top European club.”
What big club would that be? Well, certainly Barcelona would be in the mix, as would Chelsea...
