Marco Verratti Comments On FC Barcelona Links After Real Madrid Defeat
Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti has talked about the possibility of joining FC Barcelona following their UEFA Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.
The French giants were beaten 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night in the first leg of their round of 16 clash.
Verratti, who played the full 90 minutes, has been heavily linked with Real’s Spanish rivals Barca in recent transfer windows, but has seemingly remained committed to PSG.
After their loss, the Italian international has insisted he is happy at the club, although he doesn’t know what could happen in future.
"Barcelona? I don't know, I am happy here in Paris," he told Premium Sport.
"I believe in this project and I hope to stay here long. Maybe PSG will sell me but let's see."
The player was reportedly close to join Barca at the start of the season, and even went to the lengths of sacking his agent, who was reportedly trying to make a deal with the Catalan giants.
