Verratti dismisses talk of his price-tag

PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has dismissed talk of his €100 million price-tag.

Verratti was on  Chelsea and Juventus radars this season.

“No player should be worth that kind of money,” Verratti told reporters at Coverciano.

“I started from nothing, I laugh in the face of figures like that. It’s bad, because that makes you think one player can solve a game alone. I don’t fell I’m worth that figure.

“It’s nice to have a lot of clubs interested in me, but I’m thinking about winning the Champions League with PSG and improving myself. Every year could be the magical one that you remember for the rest of your life.

“I hope it’s a great year, but it’s not the time to talk about the transfer market and I’m not planning to leave Paris where I’m very happy. PSG are one of the five or six best teams in Europe.”
