Marco Verratti wants to leave PSG

Published Add your comment

Young Italian midfield maestro Marco Verratti has reportedly asked to leave PSG due to disputes over a new contract.

The breakdown in negations has resulted in talks being halted between the club and the 20-year-old's camp.

Verratti - who has been dubbed the 'New Pirlo' - is said to be demanding a new deal worth 3-4m euros a year but the French champions are unwilling to match his demands.

Napoli are said to be interested in the midfielder and a move back to his homeland would be welcomed by the Italian starlet.

Verratti now faces an uncertain future after his agent Donato Di Campli revealed that they are not happy with the talks being held with PSG.

He stated: "We're not happy. The situation is starting to become difficult.

"We even asked the club to allow him to leave but this permission was not granted."

According to French newspaper L'Equipe, a meeting is scheduled for next week between manager Laurent Blanc and Di Campli.

The newspaper also reported that Napoli was told by managing director Jean-Claude Blanc that Verratti is not for sale.

This situation will surely encourage more suitors to follow the developments closely and may even force Verratti to force a transfer by submitting a transfer request. 

Verratti still has four years remaining on his contract at the Parc des Princes but is very keen to move on after just one season.

His representatives will be seeking to get him the best deal possible to move forward.

The 20-year-old will be keen to play regular football this season as he will be looking to seal a place in the Italian squad for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
