Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

According to L’Equipe (via PSG Report), the Red Devils and German champions, Bayern Munich, have come forward to hire the services of Verratti.

The versatile 30-year-old, who can effectively play in the CM and DM roles, has an agreement with Saudi side Al-Ahli but they have yet to agree a fee with the Ligue 1 champions.

Last month, Marca (via Paisley Gates) revealed that Liverpool are prepared to sign the Azzurri star for whom PSG want a fee of 70 million euros (£60million).

As per L’Equipe (via GFFN), a move to Old Trafford cannot be ruled out for the veteran.

Verratti is a proven quality and decorated midfielder who has won 30 domestic titles in Paris. Moreover, he was a key member of the Italian squad that won the European Championships under the guidance of Roberto Mancini two years ago.

The 55-capped star has the experience to improve things in the center of the park for Erik ten Hag but Man Utd will have to offer ridiculous wages to convince him to turn down the interest from the Middle East.

As per Corriere dello Sport, Al-Ahli have agreed a contract that will make the player earn 50 million euros per season for the next three years.

Have your say – Should Man Utd offer £60million to sign Marco Verratti?
