PSG star is has been tempted to join Barcelona after it was revealed to him how much he could potentially earn at Camp Nou.
Neymar made the summer transfer window his own personal soap opera and it ended with him handing Barcelona a check for €222 million. What started everything that leads to that happening, was Barcelona going after Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti. The Catalan giants were hell-bent on signing Italian man, especially after his performances against them in the Champions League and even in the Ligue 1.
However, all this did was lead to an offensive attack by the Parisians with Neymar eventually joining them. This is exactly why many critics and fans feel that this has burned any bridge between the Ligue 1 club and the La Liga giants, especially with Barcelona still very interested in Marco Veratti. The Italian would be the perfect replacement for Xavi Hernandez, with the Catalan giants still looking for a good replacement for him.
Not just a superb passer of the ball, the 25-year-old has specialized in dictating play from deep and has also been called one of the most intelligent players around. With a pass-accuracy of over 90 percent this season alone, Marco Verratti has managed to fly under the radar thanks to the performances of Edison Cavani, Neymar, and youngster Kylian Mbappe.
However, thanks to Opta and Squawka which shows us that without the Italian’s performances PSG wouldn’t be the force they are right now. All in all, Verratti’s exactly who Barcelona need and according to reports from Dario Gol and Dario Madridista, the Italian has been tempted by a potential summer move to the La Liga.
After helping PSG dominate the French league, it looks like Marco Verratti wants to try his luck in a brand new league with a new challenge.
Marco Verratti would essentially make Barcelona perfect, giving them the missing ingredient that they have needed ever since Xavi left. However, having already spent an obscene amount on players, plus targeting Antoine Griezmann, bringing in Verratti as well may prove to be too much for the club to handle.
