Verratti ‘would return to play in Italy tomorrow’ – Milan and Juventus alerted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Juventus have been alerted by the murmurs that Marco Verratti wants to return to playing in Serie A, but an operation would be very difficult.‘s report begins by citing journalist Stefano Benzi who spoke on CMIT TV and revealed that Verratti wants to come back to Italy at some point: “They tell me that Verratti would return to play in Italy tomorrow morning.”

PSG are expected to have an overhaul in the summer but it seems unlikely that they would want to sell Verratti, who is regarded by many to be their best midfielder. The salary of €9m net per season that he currently earns seems tough for either Milan or Juventus to pay, too.

Under Investcorp the Rossoneri could decide to push the boat out a bit more in terms of salaries but it would certainly disrupt the balance given that Theo Hernandez – who recently renewed – earns basically half of that.

To move to Italy, he should therefore decide to lower his salary and at €7m per year it could become more of a feasible operation, though given his current contract expires in June 2024 an asking price of €50m seems a minimum.

  1. He’s only 29, and PSG want to keep some of the more experienced players. Di Maria would go, but Verratti I don’t think.
    Milan already have Bennaccer and Tonali in that position, we need a good Kessie replacement.
    Also, his salary would be a problem for Milan anyway.

  2. Absolutely not.
    He will be 30 at the start of the season, he is often injured , 50 million transfer fee on top of 7mil a season salary.
    No thanks. Not much of an upgrade, if any, over Benacer.
    Give me Renato Sanches, who IF stays healthy will be one of the best midfielders in Serie A and is about to enter his prime. He will bring different skill set from Tonali & Benacer. Cheaper transfer and lower salary demands

  3. Yaccine Adhli,Renato Sanchez and any two defensive midfielder from Brazil plus two strong and reliable STRIKERS. With these,AC MILAN WILL SUCCEED IN THE NEXT CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.

  4. Will be wasted of fund and not much upgrade in double pivot. His price and his asking salary are high too. We need all fund focused on RW and AMF since that 2 pos are our weakest position

  5. I wouldn’t have him at Milan purely on the basis of his attitude and discipline. His attitude stinks; so full of entitlement. And he very often gets carded.

    Bad, bad role model in any capacity.

    The problem Veratti has is that he’s matured in that PSG dressing room and he’ll struggle to adapt anywhere else. Very much the same as a spoiled child having to play nice with other kids in a different household.
