Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti is set to leave the club after 11 seasons, according to reports.
The 30-year-old Italian has been told by new coach Luis Enrique that he is no longer part of his plans, and has been linked with a move to Qatari club Al-Arabi and Premier League club Manchester United.
Verratti is a product of the PSG youth academy and has made over 420 appearances for the club, winning eight Ligue 1 titles and five Coupe de France trophies.
He is considered one of the best midfielders in the world, and his departure would be a major blow to PSG.
Al-Arabi is reportedly willing to pay €25 million for Verratti, but PSG is holding out for a higher price. Manchester United are also interested in signing Verratti and are reportedly willing to offer €30 million for the Italian midfielder.
Verratti is said to be open to a move to both Manchester United and Al-Arabi. He is reportedly impressed by the project at both clubs and is keen to play Champions League football.
The transfer window closes on September 1st. It is unclear whether Verratti will be able to secure a move before then, but it is clear that he is on the move. His departure from PSG would be a major loss for the club, but it is a necessary step if they are to rebuild and achieve their goal of winning the Champions League.
