Atletico Madrid eyes a Paris Saint-Germain player to strengthen their midfield this summer. As the capital club begins a massive turnover of the squad, players will be exiting too, which might include Marco Verratti.
Spanish outlet MARCA reports that Atletico Madrid has identified Marco Verratti as their primary target to bolster the position. However, the successful completion of this transfer largely depends on PSG.
The capital club must be willing to part ways with Verratti, and the potential fee involved in the transaction will also be necessary.

Verratti, widely regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in European football, has been an integral part of PSG.
As a result, PSG’s decision to sell Verratti will undoubtedly be a carefully considered one, considering various factors, including their midfield options and future aspirations.
If the transfer materializes, Atletico Madrid will gain a valuable addition to their midfield, providing increased creativity and control in the center of the pitch.
Verratti’s ability to dictate play and contribute defensively and offensively would significantly enhance Atletico Madrid’s chances of achieving their goals in the upcoming season.
