PSG starlet Marco Verratti has been denied the chance to join Napoli, according to the player's agent.

The PSG midfielder agreed a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions at the end of last week, which subsequently ended the excessive speculation of a potential move to Serie A side Napoli.

Verrati's agent Donato Di Campli admitted Verratti has not been given the option of a buyout clause in his new deal at the Parc de Princes.

Campli also admitted that Napoli did enquire about the young Italian star, however a 'monstrous' offer was not placed.

The 20-year-old joined the Ligue 1 side from Italian club Pescara in last summer's transfer window, amassing a total of 39 appearances during his first season at the club.

Verrati is considered to be one of the best players to have come out of Italy since Andrea Pirlo, and has been subject of considerable interest from an array of top European clubs.

"We asked for a release clause, but PSG said no," Di Campli told Radio Toscana.

"Napoli had enquired, but I never talked about a 'monstrous' offer.

"The renewal was then a logical consequence of the French club not wanting to sell him, putting him at the centre of their project."
