PSG midfielder Marco Verratti will not be joining either Juventus or Milan, according to the player’s agent.
The Italian midfielder was withdrawn from a recent goalless draw with Marseille after just 59 minutes and reacted badly when returning to the bench.
After sharing a quick word with Emery on the touchline, Verratti approached the goalkeeping coach Nicolas Dehon, asking him: ‘What does that mean, that I did badly? A bad game?’
Verratti would have no shortage of suitors if he did decide to seek a new challenge. AC Milan and Juventus have both been credited with an interest in the Italy international while La Liga and Premier League clubs would also be alert to the situation.
However, his agent Donato Di Campli has come out fighting for his client, insisting Verratti is committed to the cause at PSG and will not be looking to leave in the near future.
“Is there any hope for Juve and Milan?” the Italian’s representative Donato Di Campli told Premium Sport.
“Marco wants to win the Champions League in Paris, for now he absolutely won’t move.”
‘What bothered me was the reaction of the French radio and television commentators, not the club which has put him at the centre of their project and not the coach.
‘Marco deserves respect.’
