Paris Saint-Germain win battle for 25-year-old Man United target


Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Marco Verratti, with Paris Saint-Germain appearing to win the battle for the midfielder. According to TMW, Verratti is set to stay at PSG and will sign a new deal at the Parc des Princes. With manager Jose Mourinho eyeing up the talented playmaker this summer, he’ll be sad to be missing out on his signature.

Verratti joined PSG from Pescara in 2012 and has gone on to make 239 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 51 goals. The 25-year-old is composed in possession, happy to receive the ball in tight areas and would bring more creativity to the United midfield. However, his future appears to be in the French capital rather than in Manchester, meaning Mourinho will be forced to turn his attentions elsewhere.

According to the Daily Star, Verratti’s new deal with the Parisians could see him earn £125k-per-week until 2023. He’ll be managed by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel who reportedly told Verratti to lose weight ahead of the new season. Nevertheless, United stand little chance of hijacking a deal this summer. The Red Devils aren’t short of midfield options – Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Fred, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, Marouane Fellaini – so they can survive without Verratti.


  1. I don’t think selling pogba is the solution to man u problems but I think the solution to our problems is this new season we need to attack more than before because many teams have bought attackers than defenders. So mourinho should focus attack and I will urge Manchester united to try as much as possible to buy Mbappe and a world class striker and off load some players so that there will playing time for them also. Please don’t sell Anthony Martial
