Old Trafford side keen on PSG youngster.
Man United are in pursuit of PSG youngster Marco Verratti according to Le10Sport.
fanatix tickets- Sunderland vs Manchester United tickets are on sale from £27 for the match on March 30th at the Stadium of Light.
The Old Trafford side have contacted the young Italian midfielder’s agent about his potential availability but Sir Alex Ferguson is not alone in his interest in the player dubbed the ‘Next Andrea Pirlo’ as Barcelona are also keeping tabs on the 20 year old starlet.
The young playmaker moved to PSG in the summer after impressing many with his assured displays at Pescara and Verratti is now a firm part of Cesare Prandelli’s Italian national team set-up and indeed netted his first international goal earlier this month against Holland.
However the pint sized midfielder has only started just over half of PSG’s Ligue 1 fixtures this term and Ferguson may see the youngster as the just the ticket as he looks to freshen up his Old Trafford midfield.
Arguably the Man United midfield is a little brittle and doesn’t offer all that much in the way of attacking verve. Ferguson still relies on old timers Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and to a greater extent Michael Carrick and though Tom Cleverly has impressed the Scottish boss may feel he needs more creativity in the centre of the park and appears to see Verratti as an option this summer.
PSG spent £8m to bring Verratti to the Parc des Princes in the summer.
