The 30-year-old star was once indispensable to the PSG squad, but the overhaul in Paris to keep Mbappe at all costs took place this summer, in which Messi and Neymar both left and Verratti also officially followed.
Verratti has a good relationship both on the field and off with Messi and Neymar but is on Mbappe’s ‘hate’ list. The French striker even wanted the Italian midfielder to leave last summer, along with Neymar.
During this year’s summer transfer window, there was a time when it was rumored that Al Hilal was negotiating with both Neymar and Verratti and thought the duo would work side by side in the Saudi Pro League.
However, the latest revelation is shocking: in fact, someone pretended to be Verratti’s representative to negotiate with the Saudi club for 39 million pounds. It wasn’t until Al Hilal was about to sign that they discovered this ‘scam’ and hastily canceled it.
But as PSG planned, Verratti finally ended his 11-year relationship with this team, after Qatar’s Al Arabi also agreed to pay the Ligue 1 champion the above figure of 39 million pounds to sign a 3-year contract with him. .
As soon as the signing was confirmed, Messi sent Verratti his best wishes for the next new start in his career.
Attached is a picture (not when they played for PSG together) but when they met in the Argentina vs Italy match. Clearly, the rich French football team has behaviors that give Messi no reason to linger or keep (unfollow PSG on instagram).
