Pescara teenager Marco Verratti will touch down in France on Monday ahead of a move to Paris Saint-Germain, reports L’Equipe.
The 19-year-old is expected to sign a five-year contract with the club after PSG beat the likes of Juventus and Napoli to his swoop.
Pescara, newly promoted to Serie A, will reportedly net an initial fee of €11m but that could rise by a further €4m if certain bonus clauses are activated.
Verratti is a central midfielder who was converted from a trequartista to a deep-lying playmaker by Zdenek Zeman last term.
