Pescara have thrown doubt over Marco Verratti’s proposed transfer to Paris Saint-Germain by including him in their pre-season training squad.
The 19-year-old was thought on the verge of completing a €14m move to the French runners-up, but talks look to have stalled in recent days, with his agent’s hint that it may not go through the most recent development.
With Verratti’s inclusion in Pescara’s pre-season training squad confirmed today, speculation could now invite a possible return to talks with Juventus and Napoli, who have both previously had bids for the midfielder turned down.
Pescara begin pre-season this week in preparation for their first season in Serie A for 20 years.
