Man Utd Set to Rival Bayern for Verratti in Summer Transfer

Man Utd News

Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both shown interest in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti.

According to a report from L’Equipe, Verratti is free to leave PSG this summer after being told by manager Luis Enrique and sporting director Luis Campos that he is surplus to requirements.

Verratti has an agreement in principle with Saudi Arabian side Al-Ahli, but they have yet to agree a fee with PSG. A deal for the 30-year-old Italian could be done for around £51 million.

Verratti was left out of PSG’s first two Ligue 1 matches of the new season, further indicating that he does not feature in their plans.

United have invested heavily so far this window with the signings of Rasmus Hojlund, Andre Onana and Mason Mount. However, manager Erik ten Hag could still use more reinforcements, and Verratti’s experience in midfield would make him a valuable option.

Since joining PSG from Pescara in 2012, Verratti has made over 400 appearances for the club. He has won nine Ligue 1 titles and six French Cups during his time in Paris.

Both United and Bayern will be keen to strike a deal if Verratti becomes available, but they will face competition from Al-Ahli for his signature.
