Marco Verratti has reportedly informed PSG that he wants to leave the club, with Barcelona keen to land the Italian.
The 24-year-old has been linked with an exit from the French giants for quite some time, with speculation intensifying after PSG’s disappointing exit from the Champions League at the hands of the Blaugrana.
L’Equipe reports Verratti and agent Donato Di Campli have told director of sport Antero Henrique that the Azzurri international wants to leave PSG due to their continental struggles.
As a result Barcelona are being tipped as the most likely destination for the midfielder, with a transfer fee expected to be in the region of €80 million.
However Juventus are also being tipped as a possible landing spot after missing out on Verratti when he joined PSG from Pescara in 2012.
Last season the 24-year-old netted three times in 42 appearances.
