Barcelona are keen on signing Italian midfielder, Marco Verratti as they look to bolster their midfield ahead of the new season.

Blaugrana president Josep Maria Bartomeu claims the player wants to join the Catalan giants, but PSG are not willing to sell.

"Paris Saint-Germain want to build a competitive team that wins in Europe and doesn't just win Ligue 1 and the French Cup,” Verratti's agent, Donato Di Campli told Corriere dello Sport.

“There has been a lot of talk about [Kylian] Mbappe and an offer of €150 million, but no Champions League-calibre player has arrived so far.

"To refuse to sell Verratti for €100m has become a matter of pride…do you know what [Nasser] Al-Khelaifi told me?

"He said that there is a contract to 2021 and that we can't ever sell [Verratti] because he is considered to be a champion and a player the team is to be built around.

"He said if he sells him he'd be risking his job and that in Doha they'd never forgive him: he is a prisoner of Paris Saint-Germain's Emir.

"Verratti knows perfectly well his contractual obligations to PSG, but it's normal that he is flattered by Barcelona's interest."

That's old news. Yesterday Verratti apologised on behalf of his agent and maintained that he is willing to stay.

I was looking forward to read 'slams' only to find out the agent is just explaining. Who says when there is a offer for a player you must sell? PSG dont want to sell, even Cowselona won't sell Messi so is PSG on their Verratti. Cowselona go hang yourself Verratti is not for sale.
