Marco Verratti has seen his name in the rumor mill this summer transfer window. Paris Saint-Germain is entering a new phase with new manager Luis Enrique now at the helm.
Lionel Messi is gone, and Kylian Mbappé could be joining him. As a result, plenty of turnover within the squad’s hierarchy, which might explain the Verratti rumors. Nonetheless, the Spanish tactician wants no part of the Italian leaving.
L’Equipe reports that Verratti is convinced that he possesses more to offer to the club, setting the stage for a potential continuation of his journey with the Parisian outfit.

A pivotal factor in this potential turnaround is the strong support Verratti enjoys from PSG’s newly appointed manager, Luis Enrique. The Spanish tactician, known for his astute understanding of player dynamics, holds Verratti in high esteem.
Enrique’s endorsement of the midfielder’s capabilities has added weight to the notion that Verratti’s presence is invaluable both on and off the field. The midfielder has been linked to Al-Hilal and has reportedly agreed to personal terms. However, it seems as though that deal won’t happen.
