Serie A one day for Verratti

Marco Verratti has admitted that he’d like to play his football in Serie A at some stage, but rejected talk of an imminent move to Juventus.

The 20-year-old joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer after the French outfit offered Serie B champions Pescara12m for him.

However, whispers that Juventus will re-ignite their interest in him at the end of the season are still being heard.

“I made the right decision in going to PSG,” he said after scoring in Italy’s 1-1 draw against Holland on Wednesday night.

“I feel settled there playing alongside the great champions that we have, but it is obvious that my dream is to play in Serie A.

“Do I watch Juventus Channel on TV at home? No, I'm waiting for a Pescara Channel to arrive…”

Verratti is widely considered as an heir to Juve and Italy playmaker Andrea Pirlo.
