Marco Verratti has a clear preference for staying at an European club in the event of a departure from PSG, which is probable considering the French champions' desire to sell him this summer, aligning with the player's eagerness for a new adventure.

The surprising news about Verratti seeking an exit from Paris surfaced after PSG's intentions to offload not just Verratti but also Neymar Jr, Hugo Ekitike, Renato Sanches, and Juan Bernat by the end of August emerged a few days ago. While Al Hilal initially showed interest in Verratti, attempting to lure him to Saudi Arabia, the situation has evolved with the Italy international preferring to stay in Europe.

Recent information from Foot Mercato indicates that if Verratti does leave PSG, he wishes to remain in Europe. As such, Saudi Arabia is no longer a viable option for him nor PSG. Several prominent clubs have shown interest in the Italian midfielder, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Chelsea all keen on acquiring his services.

Verratti's decision has sparked the attention of these elite clubs, and the forthcoming developments in his transfer saga will be intriguing to watch.

PSG are determined to sell Verratti and complete a full facelift of the roster ahead of next season, starting with the departure of superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
