Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti says he would love the opportunity to play in the same midfield as Paul Pogba, although concedes the likelihood of him leaving Juventus would be relatively remote. Pogba has established himself as one of the elite midfielders in Europe since leaving Manchester United for Turin, and his performances have led to links with numerous clubs.

Among those credited with interest in Pogba are Paris Saint-Germain, with the French champions possibly one of the only clubs financially capable of testing Juve’s resolve to retain their most prized asset. Pogba has been linked with a £40 million transfer to the Parc des Princes, although the player’s agent has since ruled out a proposed move.

Verratti, meanwhile, insists it comes as no surprise that Juventus are reluctant to part company, although the young Italian still harbours a distant hope that Pogba would join him in Paris one day.

“I was sure it would end like this, Juve is not a club that sells its champions, Pogba is already a champion and I'm sure it will become even stronger,” Verratti told Italian newspaper TuttoSport.

He added: “I like to play with great players and I definitely would like to play with someone like him.”

Along with PSG, Real Madrid have also been touted as a potential suitors for Pogba while a potential transfer back to Manchester United. The 21-year-old spent four years at Old Trafford, although was unable to establish himself in the first-team.

Pogba, though, has ruled out a potential return to Manchester United, citing the manner in which he departed as reason enough not to pursue the transfer.
