Transfer complications have arisen for Marco Verratti of PSG in his potential move to Al-Ahli with the Italian breaking his talks with the clubs, according to L'Equipe.

Despite being the frontrunner to secure his signing, Al-Ahli has decided to put a halt on negotiations with the PSG midfielder, redirecting their attention toward alternative options.

A new contender, Galatasaray, has stepped onto the scene, which PSG will be glad to know as they still want to sell the Italy international this summer.

As the days go by, Verratti remains without a clear club destination. In Saudi Arabia, Al-Ahli seemed to have secured a preliminary agreement with the midfielder recently. However, Verratti's representatives reinitiated discussions by presenting a counter-proposal, leading to dissatisfaction among the Saudi leadership.

Consequently, Al-Ahli has temporarily suspended talks with Verratti, opting to observe the developments surrounding their pursuit of other midfield prospects. Ongoing negotiations are in progress with Rodrigo De Paul of Atletico and Hakan Calhanoglu of Inter Milan.

In a plot twist, another contender has emerged in the pursuit of Verratti's signature in Turkiye's champions Galatasaray.

Acknowledging the financial complexities tied to such a huge transfer, the Turkish club is making efforts to state their case and assert their interest. As Verratti's future continues to hang in the balance, the dynamic landscape of his potential transfer unfolds with uncertainties and shifting preferences.
