Youngster maintains that he sees his future in Italy, but isn’t sure when he will return.
PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has hinted at a future return to Serie A, although he admits he still believes he can be an integral part of the project in Paris.
The 20-year-old has impressed with his form for both club and country at under-21 level, and has been labelled as the heir to Andrea Pirlo in the national team given their similarities on the pitch.
The former Pescara star has hinted at a possible return to his homeland in the future, but insists that he believes he can grow into a vital part of the PSG project as they continue to bring in big-name signings.
The youngster was impressive in Les Parisiens’ title-winning campaign last season, but speculation has always suggested that clubs back in Italy would be interested in bringing him back after missing out when he left Pescara.
“A few clubs want me, but it isn’t just down to myself. It depends on the club too,” he told Il Centro as quoted by Goal.com.
“I firmly believe in the project here [with PSG] and I’m a regular here which is ideal for me.
“However, I can say with certainty that I will play in the Italian championship in the future – I just don’t know whether that will be in a few weeks or a few years.”
The Italian media suggest a move to Juventus is most likely, after the Bianconeri were beaten to his signature by PSG twelve months ago. Due to financial restraints the Turin giants were unable to compete with the French side, but with Pirlo entering the final few years of his career, Verratti may well be identified as the ideal replacement.
