The Marco Verratti transfer saga is taking a new twist, with the player reportedly having an agreement in place with Al-Hilal, although no formal deal has been confirmed. This development hasn't deterred prominent European clubs, as they're closely monitoring the situation, aiming to secure the services of the talented midfielder.
Verratti's desire to leave PSG is evident, with the influential player feeling discontent with his current club situation. Among the interested parties, Saudi Arabia's Al-Hilal has taken the lead, having a pre-existing contractual agreement with Verratti.
However, PSG rejected an initial offer of €45m demanding nearly double that amount for Verratti's services. Al-Hilal believes that an offer of around €60m could sway the Parisian side, according to Fabrizio Romano.
In addition to the interest from Al-Hilal, several European clubs are also keen on snatching Verratti. Atletico Madrid has expressed strong interest in the Parisian midfielder, though no official offer has been made to date.
Recent reports indicate that in addition to Atletico, two English clubs, one of them being Liverpool, are intrigued by the possibility of adding Verratti to bolster their midfield.
This situation has garnered significant attention of late, with Verratti's potential move rekindling interest across Europe according to Loic Tanzi and other reports published at L'Equipe linking Verratti with Atletico Madrid.
While PSG remains open to selling Verratti, the exact price remains a point of negotiation. It's believed that PSG are expecting an €80m bid and won't accept anything below that figure, though it remains to be seen if potential suitors will align themselves with this valuation or not.
