According to rumours coming from France Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants to bring PSG star Marco Verratti to Stamford Bridge.
The Italian international doesn’t get along really well with new Paris Saint Germain coach Unai Emery and already expressed his desire to leave the French side.
Anyway, Chelsea wouldn’t be the only team interested in Verratti, as the Italian midfielder is followed also by Juventus, Inter and Bayern Munich.
Ex Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti, anyway, dismissed the rumours about an immediate deal:
“Juve or Bayern for Verratti? I wouldn’t know. Agents are always playing little games to raise the prices,” the Italian coach said to ESPN.
“We are not planning the future yet, there will be time for that. Getting players from a top club like PSG is hard, as you saw with how it went with [Blaise] Matuidi. Juventus have [Miralem] Pjanic anyway so I don’t think they need Verratti. They are different, but I think they can fill the same roles.”
