Marco Verratti’s agent reveals the clubs his client turned down to stay at PSG

 Donato Di Campli, the agent of PSG defensive midfielder Marco Verratti has revealed the clubs his client turned down in order to commit to a contract extension with the current Ligue 1 champions:

After the friendly PSG vs Real Madrid, I spoke to Marco and he decided to extend his contract. Lots of clubs were interested in Verratti and I went to Madrid several times at the end of the season because Carlo Ancelotti told me he wanted to make Marco his first signing as the new manager. Finally, he went with the Illaramendi player.’

‘Fiorentina were the only Italian club who met with us in the past weeks. They were fascinated by his style of play. Atletico Madrid called me in secret but we never got to negotiate with them. There were also talks between PSG and Napoli.’
