Juventus all in for Verratti

Juventus are reportedly going all in on PSG and Italy midfielder Marco Verratti for next season.

According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri are prepared to offer €20m for the 21-year-old who is widely seen as the heir to Andrea Pirlo.

This certainly isn’t the first time that Juve have been linked with Verratti, as they were close to signing him in July 2012 before he opted for Paris.

Verratti has never actually played in Serie A, as he left Pescara after they secured promotion from Serie B, where his teammates were Lorenzo Insigne and Ciro Immobile.

He has been a regular in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, but picks up a few too many cards.

The Tuttosport front page story insists there is an important development, as Juventus are no longer ready to include Paul Pogba in any exchange deal for the Italian.
