Man Utd have edge over Barcelona in race to sign top attacker

Marco Verratti might be plying his trade at Old Trafford by the end of this summer’s transfer window.

The Italian had to publicly come out and apologise to PSG after his agent made statements claiming he was been held against his wish by the owner of PSG, after the club reportedly turned down an approach from Barcelona.

The episode has seen him keen to swap agents, and according to Italian sources, his preferred agent is Manchester United-friendly Mino Raiola.

The Dutchman has helped to broker many important deals for Manchester United over the past few seasons, including the world record transfer of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Verratti is wanted by Barcelona, but PSG has declared that he is not for sale at any price, and the player himself appears to be happy in Paris after getting assurances from the club that they would sign top players this summer.

Manchester United have been trying to sign a midfielder, but have met limited success after Tottenham decided not to allow Eric Dier leave and AS Monaco shut the door on the transfer of Fabinho. © 2017 Frontier Theme
