Verratti insists leaving Paris doesn't have to happen this summer

PSG midfielder Marco Verratti insists leaving Paris doesn’t have to happen this summer.

The 24-year-old is being linked with Barcelona and Juventus.

“I don’t need to leave at all costs, but this time I want to see if Paris Saint-Germain buy champions,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“If that does happen, then I’d be happy to remain.”

It’s been revealed president Nasser Al Khelaifi and director of sport Antero Henrique met the Italian on Thursday to propose a €220m transfer strategy.
