Marco Verratti: PSG midfielder has no interest in Juventus move

The 21-year-old was on the radar of the Italian champions in the summer of 2012, but their failure to meet Pescara's asking price saw the youngster join PSG instead.

Since then, Verratti has become one of the most important players for the Parisian giants and helped them win the Ligue 1 title last season.

Juve are rumoured to have reignited their interest in the Italy international and could reportedly make an offer in the summer, but Verratti insists that he has no plans to move to Turin.

"I feel really good at PSG and I want to remain here for a long time," he told L'Equipe.

"When I was a child, I loved Juventus, but now I am happy to be here. PSG's project is one of the best in the world.

"Should I go to Juve now, then I would be taking a step back. In Paris, I have the possibility to win everything in the next few years."
