Marco Verratti's future at PSG remains uncertain: he's reportedly struck a deal with a Saudi club and has generated interest from Qatar, with teams from the country willing to pay for him.

The PSG-Verratti saga might conclude this summer. Since 2012, the Italian midfielder has been one of PSG's staples in the Ligue 1 and Champions League. That's about to end by the look of things.

Al-Hilal, who recently acquired Neymar Jr., has shown real interest in the Italy international, though their €30m offer was initially rejected by PSG.

Al-Ahli, another Saudi club, secured a personal agreement with Verratti and are now trying to find PSG's cooperation. It's believed that there is some interest brewing from European clubs, too, with Bayern Munich and Manchester United eying Verratti.

The midfielder favors staying in Europe, but no prominent offer has reached PSG from one of the aforementioned clubs yet. The transfer deadline is approaching, though, and that should intensify negotiations as PSG seek €60m.

Qatar's Al-Arabi has emerged as a late suitor for the European champion according to L'Equipe, yet Saudi clubs are not seemingly willing to pay PSG's demanded fee.
