L’Équipe are reporting that Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both shown an interest in signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti (30), who is free to leave the club this summer.
Plenty of departures are expected from PSG between now and the end of the window. One of those is expected to be veteran midfielder Verratti, who has been at the club for over a decade. The Italian international has been told by Luis Campos and Luis Enrique that he is surplus to requirements, and finding a new club is therefore a priority. He was left out of PSG’s squad to face Toulouse FC on Saturday.
Verratti already has an agreement in place with Al Ahli, however, the Saudi side are yet to find an agreement with PSG. However, there is also interest around Europe. Notably, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both displayed an interest in Verratti in the past few days. L’Équipe add that a move to Manchester United “cannot be ruled out.” Les Parisiens believe that a deal could be done around the €60m mark.
