Verratti not leaving PSG – agent

The agent of Marco Verratti has cooled reports that the Paris Saint-Germain youngster could be set for a summer move to Juventus.

Whispers on Tuesday suggested that the recent signing from Pescara could be made available for transfer if Carlo Ancelotti is sacked in the French capital.

Juventus would then supposedly make a move seeing that the playmaker is seen as a possible heir to Andrea Pirlo for club and country.

“There is no truth in the stories that Marco will return to Italy,” representative Donato Di Campli told Il Sussidiario.

“He’s very happy at PSG, one of the most important clubs in the world and one with a very ambitious project.

“The story about Marco leaving PSG has only come out because of the Ancelotti rumours. But Marco’s future is not tied to that of Ancelotti…”

Juve tracked Verratti in the summer, but they refused to pay the €12m asking price set by Pescara.
