Marco Verratti has revealed that he was flattered by Real Madrid’s interest in him but says he wants to stay at PSG.
The Italy midfielder has reportedly been a long-term target for European champions Real Madrid, with their interest dating back to Carlo Ancelotti’s time in charge of the club.
Verratti was quizzed about Madrid’s interest in him on RAI Sport and said: “[Real] Madrid? Their interest in me was nice. It’s not every day that Madrid ask about you.
“But when I am happy at a club, I do not want to start negotiations with another. I want to win things with the shirt of PSG.”
