'I Am Happy I Snubbed Barca!'

A Paris Saint-Germain superstar has insisted he is happy with his decision to snub the opportunity to join Spanish giants FC Barcelona this season.

Barca Star: I Am Going Nowhere!

After lifting the Ligue 1 title on Sunday, Italy international Marco Verratti has claimed he is happy he stayed in Paris and is hoping to win more trophies with the club in the future.

"I'm very happy with the choice I made and I'm all the more convinced of that now," Verratti said, as quoted by ESPN.

"I really want to stay here. I feel very good here and I want to win, which is what everyone expects."

The 25-year-old, who is contracted to the Paris club until 2021, also commented on former Les Parisiens manager Carlo Ancelotti being linked with the Italy job.

"I started playing in the Champions League with him. (Ancelotti) really helped me a lot in terms of my head," the Italian added.

"He helped me outside of football, and he is still an important man for me. We'll see if he comes to Italy. I'd like him to take over the national team."

Ruthless PSG Crowned Ligue 1 Champions

The former Pescara star has made 38 appearances for PSG so far this season, scoring two goals and assisting a further seven strikes.
