The saga surrounding Marco Verratti has taken yet another twist today just hours after some fairly interesting quotes from the Italian appeared in La Gazzetta dello Sport.
In them, Verratti said he would stay at Paris Saint-Germain if the club invested in the squad this summer, despite all the speculation linking him with Barcelona.
However, just hours after those quotes surfaced, Verratti took to social media, seemingly to deny the interview.
What are we to make of it all? Are the quotes indeed fake? It certainly looks that way - which is a surprise - you wouldn't really expect that from La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Are we to believe that Verratti does indeed want to come after all? Are we going to have to put up with this nonsense for the rest of the summer?
Quite possibly, yes.
