Manchester United target: Juventus move could harm my career

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has categorically stated that he is not interested in joining Serie A champions Juventus.

The 21-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best young midfielders in Europe, has been linked with a move to Juve in recent months.

With PSG interested in Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, it has been reported that the French champions would be open to negotiating a swap deal.

However, Verratti is not remotely interested in returning to Italy, and made his feelings clear in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport at the weekend.

"Go to Juve today would be like taking a step back," the Italy international told reporters. "When I arrived in Paris, I found myself alongside players I admired only on television."

Verratti feels that PSG are on the up and "can win it all in the coming years" - hence his desire to stay put at the Parc des Princes.

However, he has not yet stated whether he feels joining Premier League champions Manchester United would also represent a backwards step in his career.

Last month it was revealed that scouts from the Red Devils have watched Verratti in action during recent weeks.
