Marco Verratti will not be leaving Paris Saint-Germain anytime soon.
Ahead of PSG’s Ligue 1 home fixture against Strasbourg on Wednesday, the club announced that it came to terms with Verratti on a two-year contract extension deal. The Italian midfielder is now tied with the club for three more seasons.

For Verratti, this decision was a simple one, as he aims to “win many more trophies” with the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
“It is an immense pride to extend my contract with Paris Saint-Germain,” Verratti told PSG’s official website. “It’s been more than 10 years since I arrived in Paris, in this city that I consider my second home. I have always received a lot of support from the club and the fans since my debut and I am very grateful for that.
“It was obvious to me that my story would continue to be written here. I hope to win many more trophies with the red and blue jersey.”
Verratti’s future was up in the air over the past months, as he had a mere two more years left on his contract at PSG. However, PSG club officials were aiming for quite some time to reach an agreement with the Italian midfielder for a new deal. After months of reported talks regarding this matter, the two sides were able to resolve this dilemma on Wednesday.
Overall, Verratti has won 29 trophies over his ongoing run at PSG.
