Manchester United target and Paris Saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has admitted that he would happily move to a “top team” in the future.
Verratti’s agent, Donato Di Campli, recently confirmed that the midfielder, with PSG enduring a difficult season, was open to a move elsewhere.
And the 24-year-old, when asked about the possibility of a move away from Paris, noted that he would happily sign for a bigger club if the chance came knocking.
“I would like to, I can definitely see it,” he said.
“But it has to be a top team, whether that be in our country or in Spain. But at the moment, I am at PSG and I am happy with the role I have in my team.”
It’s quite important to discern what Verratti means exactly by a “top team” or, in other words, a team bigger than PSG. The French side are, man for man, a better side than Man United, but when it comes to the stature – the worldwide appeal and outreach – of the two clubs there is no dispute when it comes to determining which one dwarfs the other.
Either way, Mourinho will know that securing a Champions League spot is a prerequisite for when it comes to securing one of Europe’s finest midfielders this summer.
