Young Italian unlikely to return home anytime soon.
Paris Saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has played down reports that he is set for a January move back to Italy with Inter Milan, Sky Sports reports.
Reports in Italy have suggested that the Nerazzuri are set to undergo a spending spree in the new year after new owner Erick Thohir acquired a majority share in the club, and one of his first pieces of business will be to bring Verratti back home.
The Indonesian businessman acquired a 70 per cent stake of the Serie A giants on Tuesday.
The talented yougnster has also been linked as a possible target for Manchester United. However, his agent, Donato Di Campli, was quick to brush off claims that his client was due to leave the French capital.
“There is no chance of a move,” he said.
“That is because Verratti is not on the transfer market and hasn’t been since he arrived at PSG.
“They won’t sell him. I have never received a call from Inter.
“If they want him then they would have to contact PSG and not me.”
Verratti joined up with the French giants in the summer last year from Pescara for a fee of around £10m. The Italian playmaker made 39 appearances for PSG last season and this summer signed a contract extension which ties him to the French champions until June 2018 after an intense period of speculation linking him away from the club.
