Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti looks set to disappoint his many suitors after confirming that he wants to stay at the Parc des Princes beyond the summer.
The talented midfielder has looked set to be among the key protagonists of the transfer window, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona believed to be keen on his signature according to Le 10 Sport.
Similarly, there has been reported interest form the Premier League, with both Arsenal and Chelsea looking to ring the technically-gifted 22-year-old to London [via the Express].
However, speaking to AFP [via L’Equipe] the midfielder has stated unequivocally that he is not looking to leave Paris this summer.
“I’ve always said that unless PSG dump me, my priority is to stay here,” the Italian began, “I feel very good in this city, in this club.
“I’m in a major team, I am part of a big project. We want to be all together in order to succeed in acquiring the Champions League.”
The international, who arrived at PSG from Pescara in the summer of 2012, was a key figure this season as Laurent Blanc’s side won the French title.
He featured 32 times in Ligue 1 this season, and will look to play his part on Saturday evening as PSG chase a historic domestic treble in the French Cup final against Auxerre.
