Paris Saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti is reportedly a key transfer target for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, while Barcelona has also been linked with a move for the 24-year-old.
However, Marco Verratti’s brother, Stefano Verratti, expects his brother to stay at Paris Saint-Germain for the remainder of his career.
“Personally I thought he would go to Juventus because when we were little and we played football in our room or in the piazza in Manopello, our dream was Juventus,” Stefano Verratti told L’Equipe.
“Will he leave PSG? My brother has always been respectful of the team, I think if he can he’ll stay in Paris for life.
“He’s very attached to this city, it’s where his son was born. It was in Paris that Marco became a man. Teammates change but the club and the city remain.
“In my opinion, Marco will only return to Italy if PSG decide he’s no longer useful here. What I hope is that when he’s 30, 32, he’ll come back to finish his career with Pescara.
“He could have a penultimate year in China and the last one with Pescara.”
