Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has blasted reports that he wants a move to Barcelona and insisted he is happy in Paris.
Reports last week indicated the player’s agent Mino Raiola had offered the Italian international to the Blaugrana, but he has clarified he has no desire to move clubs.
“I've read that Raiola has offered me Barcelona but it's false, there is no truth,” Verratti is cited as saying by Marca.
“I've talked to the manager (Unai Emery) and my representatives and they know what I think, things are clear, I've decided to stay.
“This decision has made me grow as a person too.”
