There is a chance, still, that Marco Verratti remains at Paris Saint-Germain, but the Italian international insists that Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the owner of the club, go all out to get players that win the trophies that matter in world club football. With the transfer window set to open next weekend, it’s high time in Paris for Verratti and a number of other players that could be heading out of the Parisians.

“It’s not that I want to go at all costs, it’s just I want to see if they really do build a great squad this time,” said Verratti. “In that case, I would be happy to stay.

“Each year they say they are going to build a great squad, but we’ve seen the results. Promises are not enough. If, on the other hand, this time PSG with [sporting director Antero] Henrique stick to what they say, then I will be absolutely happy to stay. At the end of the day, nobody is forcing me to leave.”

PSG is expected to convene at the Camp des Loges on July 4 but Verratti will tentatively rejoin the team ahead of the International Champions Cup. Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero is now among those that Paris Saint-Germain are pursuing. From ClubCall…

Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with Sergio Aguero amid speculation Manchester City are open to offers for the striker. City have been linked with the likes of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in recent weeks, and if they land one of their attacking targets Aguero could well be pushed down the pecking order.

The Argentine found himself behind Gabriel Jesus at times last season and another marquee forward could convince City to cash in on Aguero. French publication Le Parisien have now claimed PSG are considering a 60million euros move for Aguero as they look to strengthen their own attacking options ahead of the new season.
