Manchester United target Marco Verratti has revealed he is keen on staying at Paris Saint-Germain for the foreseeable future.

The 21-year-old Italian international has become a major part of Paris Saint-Germain's side since he joined the Ligue 1 outfit from Italian side Pescara.

Paris Saint-Germain handed Verratti a contract extension at the start of the season in hope that it would ward off interest from the likes of Manchester United.

However it now seems like the Ligue 1 moneybags did not have to go out of their way to tie the deep-lying midfielder down to a new contract as Verratti has stated his intent on staying at the Parc des Princes.

Speaking to beIN Sport, Verratti said on his long-term future: "[Paris] is a beautiful city and I would like to live here all my life!"

The £34million-rated midfielder also revealed that he was delighted to see Yohan Cabaye join the club in January - despite the fact that they will both be vying for a spot in Paris Saint-Germain's first team.

"Yohan, he's a great guy," added Verratti. "He will help us as he's a really great player.

"Even though I know that he's come here to play in midfield, I don't feel any danger at all."

Verratti is likely to feature against Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League tonight.
