PSG midfielder opens door to summer Serie A move
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti admits that Juventus are a club he could join were he ever to leave France, via Sky.
Verratti, 24, has developed into one of Europe’s best midfielders since leaving Pescars in his native Italy to join PSG in 2012 and has been linked with a number of top European clubs for a number of years.
Barcelona are believed to see him as a long-term heir to Andres Iniesta, with the 32-year-old’s contract expiring at the end of next season.
While he has always maintained commitment to the Ligue 1 giants, Verratti says he admires both Inter and Juventus and refused to rule out a move to either one day.
“Italy has a great championship. Two teams like Inter Milan or Juventus are capable of investing,” he told Sport.

“We have seen it with [Gonzalo] Higuain. Juventus are one of the four best teams in the world.
“They have progressed a lot. If I ever have to leave PSG, I would have no problem in going to this club (Juventus) but as of today I am good where I am.”
