Andres Iniesta believes Chelsea target Marco Verratti will be his heir at Barcelona,
This is all according to Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
Verratti is reportedly high on Chelsea’s shortlist for the next transfer window, while other reports in Italy claim that PSG have now put a an €80 million (£68.2m) price tag on the 24-year-old.
However, during Verratti’s very impressive display against the Spanish champions, Matuidi revealed what he said to Iniesta about his PSG team-mate.
‘At 2-0, we saw the faces of the Barcelona players and they seemed very angry with themselves,’ Matuidi told France Bleu radio.
‘However, I do remember one moment when I said something to Iniesta. When Marco was on the ground, I said to Iniesta: ‘that is your successor.’
‘He agreed and replied: ‘yes, that is what I think [too].’
