Manchester United target Marco Verratti will not be joining Inter Milan, according to the player's agent.
20-year-old Verratti, who currently represents wealthy French champions Paris Saint-Germain, has made a huge impression since moving to Ligue 1 from Italian outfit Pescara in July 2012 and was linked with a switch to United - among a host of other clubs - during the summer transfer window.
Serie A giants Inter were also rumoured to be interested in bringing the Italian international back to his homeland, with the talented playmaker having voiced his desire to return to his native nation in the future and the club having recently experienced a takeover.
However, it looks as if Verratti won't be making that particular move anytime soon, with the player's agent having dismissed reports of his client leaving the French capital in favour of a switch to the famous San Siro.
"Inter? There is no possibility, because he has not been on the market since joining PSG. It's clear that he would like to return to Italy one day, but not now," he told Tuttomercatoweb in an interview that was quoted by talkSPORT.
Presumably this means United will also be unable to secure Verratti's signature in the near future, with beleaguered Red Devils boss David Moyes looking to bolster his ailing midfield when the transfer window re-opens in the new year.
