MU was advised not to sign Verratti
Midfielder Verratti is said to be ready to leave PSG in the summer, after feeling ‘betrayed’ by the way fans targeted him, alongside Messi and Neymar.
Verratti has joined PSG for 11 years now and considers the French team as his ‘second home’. However, the situation worsened this season, in addition to the performance affected by injury, Verratti was criticized for being overweight.
Football Italia said that PSG was not satisfied with Verratti’s discipline off the pitch and gained weight after the 2022 World Cup (the tournament he was absent from because Italy did not win tickets).
MU was announced to be interested in PSG midfielder while Erik ten Hag wanted to supplement the defense. However, in addition to the above warnings about Verratti, the Red Devils were also advised by ‘old man’ Mikael Silvestre not to sign the 30-year-old star because of this:
“I like Verratti very much as a player. He’s always been great playing for both PSG and Italy. But I think MU has to look for younger players to build for the future.
In the Erik ten Hag lineup, Casemiro and Eriksen both have passed the 30 mark, and Bruno Fernandes is also about to cross this threshold. Therefore, the Red Devils need to add younger players, instead of like Verratti (who will also be 31 next November).”
