Marco Verratti has formally requested to leave Paris Saint Germain. The same report also claims that Manchester United and Manchester City are also likely to join the race for the midfielder's signature.

Marco Verratti has been linked with a summer exit from Paris Saint-Germain.

A £70m move for Everton's Romelu Lukaku is believed to have been wrapped up already, while a £40m deal for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is also edging closer.

L'Equipe expect that Verratti will remain at PSG, who value the player at €80m, and refer back to the previous occasions that Al-Khelaifi has not allowed want-away players to leave.

"It's very complicated [to leave], but we have expressed our ideas to PSG".

"Juventus will certainly do something special in the next transfer window", Di Campli told Tuttosport. "If PSG do not want to sell him despite having offers from all over Europe, then we would just have to take that on board".

And as that has happened, his agent has talked.

The Ligu 1 club appointed Antero Henrique as their new director of sport, replacing former Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert. "It's hard; I think it's a deal which is still out of the scope of Italian clubs". They want to keep him at the club for as long as possible and are willing to making him one of the highest-paid players in the world.

It was the current Bayern boss who launched the midfielder's career when he signed him for PSG in 2012. The reported €100 million bid would be more than enough for the club to secure the signing, but PSG might hold out for another €20-25 million.
