‘Verratti can’t stay against his will’

“My advice for Verratti? It’s a decision that must be his, it really depends on what he wants to do,” the Torino goalkeeper told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It’s always difficult to leave a team like Paris Saint-Germain, especially in this way. I’m sorry,” he told L’Equipe.

Torino ask for Vermaelen help

Torino have asked Barcelona for Thomas Vermaelen on loan, but only if they can help pay for his wages.

Reports had emerged over the last couple of days that the Granata wanted to bring in Vermaelen after his disappointing one-season spell at Roma.

Now Sky Sport Italia claim that Toro won’t be able to pay his full salary of €2.5m per year.

They are therefore requesting that Barcelona shoulder some of that bill while the Belgium international is in Turin.
