Barcelona are keen to take a closer look at Paris Saint Germain youngster and Manchester United target Marco Verratti.
Verratti joined French side PSG in 2012 from Pescara and has become one of European football’s most consistent midfielders.
However the Italian youngster has slightly dropped down the pecking order since French midfielder Yohan Cabaye joined in January from Newcastle United.
That has led clubs such as Manchester United and Juventus to show interest but La Liga side Barcelona have now joined the race.
[FDN] believe Barca see Verratti as ‘fresh’ legs as they plan to build for the future. (SportsDirectNews)
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out
