Italy starlet Marco Verratti has warned the big clubs to forget about signing him this summer. “I am staying. This was not my last game for Pescara.”
The 19-year-old has already made it into the senior Italy squad and is in the 32-man long-list for Euro 2012.
Juventus confirmed they are interested in him, while Napoli, Inter, Milan and Roma are among those who are also looking at a bid.
“I am staying,” he insisted after Pescara won the Serie B tournament.
“This was not my last game for Pescara.”
The club also reiterated it would try to keep hold of Verratti, who has been nicknamed the ‘new Andrea Pirlo.’
