The Argentine’s Barcelona exit has stunned the football world and Paris Saint-Germain are now in possession of a truly awesome attacking unit…
Marco Verratti has never hidden his excitement at the idea of playing in the same side as Lionel Messi.
As recently as February, when the full extent of Barcelona’s financial crisis was starting to become clear, the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder was asked by Canal Plus about the prospect of the Argentina attacker swapping Camp Nou for the Parc des Princes.
“To have him in the squad would be something magnificent,” Verratti gushed. “I would give the ball to Neymar and Messi and stay behind to just enjoy watching them a bit.”
