Marco Verratti’s agent sensationally has claimed that his client is “a prisoner” at Paris Saint-Germain.
Speaking to Corriere dello Sport, Donato di Campli said that, not only PSG refused to sell the midfielder, but he’s also being held as “a prisoner”.
“Paris Saint-Germain want to build a competitive team that win in Europe and don’t just win Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
“There’s been a lot of talk about [Kylian] Mbappe and an offer of €150m, but no Champions League-calibre player has arrived so far.
“To refuse to sell Verratti for €100m has become a matter of pride… do you know what [Nasser] Al-Khelaifi told me?
“He said there was a contract until 2021 and that he couldn’t ever sell [Verratti] because he was considered to be a champion and a player that the team were built around.
“He said if he sold him, he’d be risking his job and that in Doha they’d never forgive him: [Verratti’s] a prisoner of PSG’s Emir.
“Verratti knows perfectly well his contractual obligations to PSG, but it’s normal that he is flattered by Barcelona’s interest.” //Actuantes//
