Paris Saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti’s agent Donato Di Campli has noted that his client’s future with the French side is “complicated” amid interest from Manchester United and other clubs.
Di Campli confirmed earlier this year that he would hold talks with the club over Verratti’s future following a widespread regression under Unai Emery.
Recent reports have claimed that the Italian met with PSG’s new sporting director, Antero Henrique, this week to confirm his desire to leave over the summer.
And Di Campli, speaking to Sky Italia, noted that Verratti was in a complicated predicament this summer.
“It’s very complicated [to leave], but we have expressed our ideas to PSG,” he said.
“We’re not talking about Barcelona or other clubs, it’s about projects. I think I represent a champion and clearly I have questions. To be a champion you have to win.
“If PSG don’t want to sell him, despite offers from all over Europe, then we’d have to examine our consciences in Italy. It’s difficult. I think it’s a deal which is still out of the scope of Italian clubs.”
Developments relating to Verratti’s future have demonstrated in bright colours his insistence on performing at the highest level. Speculation surrounding his future has not, as the above corroborates, stemmed from any particular outside interest, but rather because PSG have seemingly taken a step back over the last nine months.
This is clearly anathema to the 24-year-old; he clearly doesn’t feel like he can progress on a sinking ship, and supporters will hope to see Mourinho to convince Verratti that, by moving to Old Trafford, he would be joining a truly exciting project.
