But Verratti seems to have poured cold water on the possibility of a move to the Camp Nou, at least this year, by outlining his desire to remain in Paris.

“I’m happy in Paris, it’s a great project and I’ll still be there next season,” he said.

Barcelona are enduring a tough season this year, trailing arch-rivals Real Madrid in the LaLiga title race, but they did complete the most remarkable Champions League comeback of all time against PSG, recovering from 4-0 down to win 6-1 on aggregate in the last 16.
