Verratti: I'd like to work with Ancelotti again – but I'm happy at PSG

The 21-year-old playmaker enjoyed his season working under the current Real Madrid boss at the Parc des Princes, though he can see no reason to leave the French capital

Marco Verratti has admitted that he would like to work with Carlo Ancelotti again – but insists that he has no intention of leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

The Italy international has established himself as one of the most promising young players in world football since departing his native Pescara for the Parc des Princes in the summer of 2012.

Consequently, he is constantly being linked with Serie A champions Juventus, while there is also talk that former PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti would like to be reunited with the 21-year-old midfielder at current club Real Madrid.

Verratti is flattered by all of the speculation but says that he sees no reason to leave PSG.

“Clearly I am pleased to be of interest to a club like Juve, but I repeat I am very happy in Paris,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Every year rumours seem to emerge that I am going to Juventus, so this story has been going for a long time.

“I also speak to Ancelotti often and we have an excellent rapport. I grew up a lot under his tutelage and I’d love to work with him again.

“As I said, though, I am happy at PSG and would only look around if I was told I no longer had a place in the project.”
