PSG pay Verratti €12m salary?

Journal du Dimanche claims Marco Verratti will sign a new Paris Saint-Germain contract worth €12m (£10.8m) per year.

The Italy international had asked to leave in May when he was frustrated by the lack of silverware and Champions League ambition.

However, after they shelled out a world record €222m to release Neymar from his Barcelona contract and brought in Dani Alves from Juventus, there is more confidence at PSG.

According to the French newspaper Journal du Dimanche, Verratti has been offered a new and improved contract worth €12m per year.

This would double his current salary of €6m.
