Marco Verratti: The PSG midfielder says a number of clubs are interested in him

The 20-year old still has another four years to run on his contract in Paris having made the switch from Italian outfit Pescara last summer, and he impressed in his debut season, with Manchester United reported to be among his admirers.

Verratti also caught the eye for Italy's Under 21s during this summer's European Championship, and the youngster says he has been attracting plenty of interest during the transfer window.

"A few clubs want me," Verratti told Il Centro.

"But it's not only up to me; it's also up to the club. I believe in PSG's plan and next year I want to play at the World Cup.

"In Paris I'm a regular player, so it's ideal.

"One day I'll surely come back to play in Italy but I don't know if that will be in a few weeks or in a few years. PSG is the present."
