According to the latest information from RMC, Marco Verratti wants to stay at PSG. Although there were rumors about his potential exit from Paris a few weeks ago, the current trend is pointing toward that no longer being the case this summer.
Marco Verratti surely felt great after the final whistle of MD38 of Ligue 1 between PSG and Clermont (2-3) when Paris Saint-Germain celebrated their 11th domestic title on their own lawn.
This season has been definitely one of ups and downs for PSG and Verratti by extension, and one could even argue it's been the worst in the Italian's career. Accustomed to putting on steady performances in recent years, the former Pescara player has had a difficult year, marked by various physical problems.
The season was complicated enough for the European champion with never-ending rumors about his future and painting him in a mindset of entertaining the idea of leaving PSG 11 years after his arrival in Paris. Recently, this last hypothesis gained strength, although that narrative has taken a 180-degree turn.
According to information from RMC (h/t Canal Supporters), Marco Verratti wants to stay at PSG. "It's the strongest trend," noted the radio station. The 30-year-old midfielder, who extended his contract at PSG last December until 2026, should continue his adventure in Paris next season.
However, according to the same source, in the event that the Italian's intention changes and he finally asks to leave, PSG will not refuse to do so, since he is looking for a favorable financial return for his accounts and would never oppose the exit of an unsettled and unhappy player.
Recently, and pending officialization, PSG closed the signing of Manuel Ugarte, a 22-year-old midfielder from Sporting CP, who more than a replacement seems to be a perfect complement for the Italian and who should at least partially convince Verratti to stay put in Paris while freeing him from defensive duties on the pitch, those now undertaken by Ugarte.
