The 20-year old, who impressed for Italy at this summer's European Under 21 Championship, had previously been linked with a return to Serie A, as well as a move to Manchester United.

However, Verratti has now brought an end to the speculation surrounding his future by signing a new deal.

"Arriving at Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, Marco Verratti has shown his desire to impress in his time with the club. The young Italy international has played 36 games, including nine in the Champions League last season.

"The extension shows the will of the Paris Saint-Germain to build a project for the future and to build one of the greatest teams in Europe."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
