Paris Saint-German midfielder Marco Verratti, who has been linked with a transfer to both Juventus and Manchester United, claims he not considering a move a way from the Parc des Princes and is ‘very happy’ to continue playing for the club.

Verratti was signed by PSG from Pescara during the summer transfer window of 2012 and has performed impressively during his time in Paris. The 21-year-old has made 26 starts in all competitions for PSG this season, and is in contention to face Bayer Leverkusen this week.

His displays have led to links with Manchester United as David Moyes strives to bring reinforcements to Old Trafford but, perhaps more seriously, there have also been mentions of possible transfer to Juventus.

Verratti has expressed concerns that playing away from Italy may damage his international prospects moving forward, but he is expected to be included in the World Cup squad for this summer. He does not, however, have any immediate plans to seek a move away from PSG.

"Eighteen months later I can judge my experience in a more complete way," he told "I'm very happy and proud to represent PSG because we're a great team.”

Such have Verratti’s performances been, the youngster has drawn comparisons to Italy and Juventus great Andrea Pirlo, and is even being touted as a replacement for the veteran midfielder. It is a comparison that Verratti is flattered by to say the very least.

"[The comparisons] are definitely something that make me feel proud," Verratti added.

"Being compared to such a player like Pirlo, a guy who has won everything in his career, that's very important for me. I'm very happy to be compared to Andrea."
