Verratti agent: ‘Juventus are more attractive than PSG’

June 9, 2017 - 10:51 am

Marco Verratti’s agent believes Juventus “will certainly do something special in the the transfer window” and calls the  Bianconeri a “much more attractive” proposition.

PSG seem intent on keeping their midfield star, however his agent Donato Di Campli continues to fuel speculation that the players future may not be certain.

“Juventus will certainly do something special in the next transfer window” he told Tuttosport.

“Verratti? There’s the will of PSG to keep him at all costs.

“Now it’s clear: money isn’t enough. Appeal is also needed, and in the last four or five years, the French club haven’t done enough to improve in that regard.

“Juventus are much more attractive because champions are attracted to winning teams.”

Di Campli also represents young talent Riccardo Orsolini who has enjoyed a spectacular campaign at the U20 World Cup.

“Orsolini? He’s a huge talent. I think he’ll start preseason with Juventus and try to get noticed by Allegri.

“He could also stay until January, trying to find some room. Juventus are one of the few teams that make room for talent.

“I talked to Paratici just today: he’s flooded with enquiries, but with Pjaca being injured and so many situations to settle, he could surprise everyone.

“We’ll study the right path for him. For me, he’s ready for top-level football.

“He’s a lad with his head screwed on, he’s very focused on his football career, he knows he’s been the centre of attention, but that doesn’t burden him,

“Orsolini compared to Bentancur? There’s been a lot of talk about Bentancur, but at the World Cup, the observers mostly watched Orsolini and Favilli.

“Andrea escaped through the front door, but Juve are trying to get him back. We’re discussing the best course of action with Ascoli and Juventus.

“It’s too bad that there are no reserve teams in Italy, which shows the backwardness of the FIGC.

“Coulibaly? Juve are attentive, but it’s not just the Bianconeri.

“Milan clubs for the Scudetto? Inter have one of the best sporting directors around, Sabatini and Milan have shot off. The important thing for them is not to end badly.”

    Orsolini showed some icredible talent in the U20 FIFA Worldcup. He scored a total of 4 and ended a ry good year with Ascoli in Serie B. I think he has more than earned the right to be there for the preseason and why not claim the back up right wing position from cuadrado. By the way I like the names beeing thrown for Juve the last days ,well all of them except the Pole. I am impressed though, that given our will to get at least two capable wingers, noone mentions Berardi!! I would like to see him and Costa join us, more so than the likes of Keita and Bernadeschi and think that we the two of them and two DM with box to Box qualitties we have everything we need to succeed. I would go as far as sucrificing Bonucci to fund the likes of Tolisso – Fabinho – Berardi and a package of Douglas Costa and Renato sanchez from Bayern, heck, I would even go as far as selling one or two of the Pjanic – Khedira – Marchisio if money was an issue.

      Are you seriously saying you wouldn’t mind selling Pjanic or marchisio ?

        Yes sir! They do not fit into the 4-2-3-1 we play! Enough with the sentimentality! Since they cannot be used,let them go and bring in someone who can! After all, you never know who the next legend will be!

          Why can’t they play in that system. Pjanic has played as a playmaker up front and as a defensive mid. Surely he can do a job? Systems and formations come and go. They are transient. Great players remain just that: great. Marchisio is on his day a formidable player. Tough, direct, great passing and awareness. Plus an eye for a great goal or two. His decline in playing time at Juve is in my opinion directly linked to the consequences of playing our all to often lightweight and easily overcome midfield – the consequences of which we all saw last weekend (and earlier in the season).

            Agreed! Formations do come and go,so do the players, and no one is above the club!I love Marchisio and I like Pjanic enough to prefer him to Dybala as a trequartidta! The issue with them is that even though they are capable of playing DM ,they are not natural in the position and as a result unable to play at the level they can,if deployed that deep!Plus,Pjanic is one of the reasons why the offensive players need to do so much defending! He is just to weak mentally and physically to screen the midfield by himself on a two pivot system! His position is behind the Prima punta, creat, support and attack, not battling to gain possession…..! So if we stick to 4-2-3-1 at least 2 out of the aforementioned 3 are surplus to requirements!

      Only Khedira is surplus to requirements.

    How good is Verratti? He never seems that great when I watch PSG or Italy matches, but people do rate him highly, so is he world class?

      He is certainly a great player, but a 80 M one!!? I do not think so,That much money need to go to someone who scores! Take the Pogba – Higuain example! They cost as much but a striker like Higuain has a lot more chances to change the fortunes of a much than a midfielder will ever have! For that money we get Costa and Nzozi who I bet will be more important than a single DM whatever his name….
