Marco Verratti’s clear request to Barcelona
Marco Verratti has continued to make it clear that he want to leave Paris Saint Germain.
But the French club are holding him down with the new contract he just signed with them and have refused to open talks with Barcelona.
They have been signs PSG could be willing to listen to offers as Verratti’s picture has been omitted from their kit launch, and announcement of their US tour.
PSG were back in training this week Tuesday (4th July), Verratti was absent but is expected to fully return to training next Monday.
Reports from Marca suggests some sort of strike action as they claim he would refuse to train with his teammates, but remain in the gym.
Meanwhile the French papers say Verratti wants Barcelona to make progress on talks. PSG have their first preseason game against Roma on 20th July and he wants to be at least one step closer to Barcelona.
He simply wants Barcelona to make a firm move before PSG’s first game.
