Verratti to double PSG salary

Marco Verratti is set to sign a new deal at Paris Saint-Germain which would double his current salary, according to reports.

According to Journal du Dimanche, the Italian international will sign a new deal at the Parc des Princes worth an estimated €12m per year, double his current annual earnings of €6m.

The 24-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou earlier this summer but the Ligue 1 side were adamant he would not be sold, before swooping for Barca star Neymar.

The former Palermo midfielder now looks set to commit his long-term future to the Parisians and end any lingering speculation.
