Marco Verratti, who has been linked with a move away from PSG has stepped up and responded to the speculations.
Marco Verratti refuted suggestions agent Mino Raiola touted his services to Barcelona and is adamant he will be staying at Paris Saint-Germain next season.
Italy international Verratti has been linked with Barcelona on and off for several years, having established himself as one of Europe’s most talented central midfielders.
After PSG’s Champions League exit, reports in France claimed Verratti had instructed Raiola to secure him a move to Barca.
Verratti responded by saying: “I’ve read that Raiola has offered me to Barcelona – it’s false.
“I talked to my managers, they know what I think, things are clear. I have decided to stay at PSG.”
Verratti also reflected on PSG’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid and he believes losing Neymar is akin to Barcelona being without Lionel Messi.
