After the departures of Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani, Marco Verratti, along with Marquinhos, is the longest-tenured players at Paris Saint-Germain. Having arrived from Delfino Pescara in Serie B, Verratti has become a key figure in the midfield.
The 28-year-old arrived in 2012, and although there were times of a rumored departure, Verratti has remained with the capital club over the last six seasons. With injuries and his inability to stay healthy, some supporters have wondered if it’s time to move on from the Italy international.
However, Verratti’s agent, Mino Raiola, spoke with Tutttosport (via Canal Supporters). He stated that he doesn’t see his client leaving the French capital anytime soon after answering a question concerning whether he sees Verratti heading home to Italy to play in Serie A.
“See Verratti one day in Serie A? It’s very difficult, the owner of PSG likes him a lot. He is their protége. They are in love with him. A close if Verratti decides to leave, he leaves. But this is not the case. He is happy in Paris,” Raiola said.
Verratti is under contract until 2024, and with the way Raiola is speaking of his client, it doesn’t seem as though they plan to go anywhere in the near future.
