Chelsea have been asked to shell out £59m for one of their transfer targets this transfer window, according to reports.
French source Buzzsport claims that Ligue 1 champions PSG have slapped a price tag of £59m on their star player Marco Verratti.
The Italian midfielder has been one of the Blues’ targets this transfer window, and PSG have made it abundantly clear that they won’t let go of the 23-year old easily. The attacking midfielder is a part of the long term plans of the French club, but Chelsea might be able to use PSG’s interest in Eden Hazard to broker a deal.
Verratti signed for PSG in 2012, after helping his previous club Pescara won promotion to Serie A. He won the best player of the year award for Serie B in 2011-12 before sealing his move to Paris. He has won three league titles during his time in France.
He is one of the best midfield talents in world football at the moment. Player just commited one of the most hilarious and ridiculous fouls ever seen in football. Maybe Chelsea fans will get the chance to see something similar from this superstar on Stamford Bridge.
