Barcelona interested in former PSG icon Marco Veratti – Get French Football News

According to Mundo Deportivo, Marco Veratti (31) the former Paris Saint-Germain icon could once again be in the crosshairs of Barcelona. 

The Catalans have long been admirers of the Italian midfielder and had previously targetted him during the 2017 transfer window. At the time, Barcelona believed that they were close to a deal, having already agreed on personal terms with Veratti, who was likewise keen on a move away from the French capital. 

However, Barcelona and Veratti were met with a point-blank refusal from Les Parisiens to agree to any deal for their player. A situation that only became thornier when PSG swooped in and stole Neymar (31) from Barcelona during the very same transfer window

Last summer when Veratti was allowed to leave PSG, Barcelona once again were interested in signing their former target and were once again met with PSG’s refusal to do business. The midfielder eventually moved to the Qatari league where he currently plays for Al-Arabi. 

Barcelona hesitant but once again interested in Marco Veratti

Without PSG standing in their way, Barcelona could be interested in coming in for the elusive midfielder. However, are thought to be concerned by his high wages and the possible standard of football he has been playing at for the past season.
