The Italian is widely regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the game and Arsenal are said to be one of the clubs keeping tabs on the player. Rumours regarding a summer move to Italian champions Juventus have resurfaced which Verratti says have become a tradition. Every year rumours seem to emerge that I am going to Juventus, so this story has been going for a long time,” he said. Verratti then confessed that the chance to work with Ancelotti would be something that would interest him in the future but denied that he wanted to leave PSG. I also speak to Ancelotti often and we have an excellent rapport. I grew up a lot under his tutelage and I’d love to work with him again. As I said, though, I am happy at PSG and would only look around if I was told I no longer had a place in the project, he told Sky Sport Italia. Verratti signed for PSG in 2012 from Pescara, for a fee of 10. 5million and has gone on to earn four senior caps with Italy since his transfer.
The 21-year-old has made 27 appearances in Ligue 1 this season as well as playing in eight out of PSG’s 10 Champions League games including both quarter-final matches against Chelsea.
