Man United planning summer swoop for €180,000-a-week midfielder

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United are considering the option of landing Paris Saint-Germain central midfielder Marco Verratti.

Reports from Calcio Marcato claim that the French giants have approached the Red Devils and offered them the chance to land the midfielder in this transfer market.

Marco Verratti’s future looks undetermined with the player reportedly interested in leaving Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Verratti has already met with new coach Thomas Tuchel, who has taken over from Spanish manager Unai Emery, with Tuchel supposedly telling Italy international that he is no longer part of the long-term project.

Jose Mourinho is interested in adding to his midfielder options this summer with the retirement of Englishman Michael Carrick and the likely departure of Belgium international Marouane Fellaini.

Manchester United are already on the brink of announcing the imminent signing of Brazilian star Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk but are keen to further add to their central alternatives, and Verratti could fit the bill nicely.

This season, in all competitions (Ligue 1, Champions League, Coupe de la Ligue, Coupe de France, Trophée des Champions), Marco Verratti has made 38 appearances, netted two goals and provided seven assists.
