Verratti’s Barca ultimatum?

Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti has reportedly told friends it’s ‘now or never’ for him if he is to join Barcelona.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, the Italian midfielder has his heart set on leaving the Parisians this summer and his ‘dream’ is to join the Blaugrana.

The Catalan media outlet is confident the 24-year-old is willing to play his part in potentially ‘complicated’ negotiations between the clubs in his attempts to force the move this summer.

Verratti was involved in his side’s thrilling 6-5 aggregate defeat to Barca in this season’s Champions League and that capitulation, alongside losing the Ligue 1 title to Monaco, has persuaded him to launch a new challenge in his career.
