BREAKING NEWS: Verratti pens new five-year PSG contract
Marco Verratti has committed himself to Paris Saint-Germain until 2024, the Ligue 1 champions have confirmed.
Verratti joined PSG from Italian club Pescara in 2012 and has been a fixture in the side ever since, despite suffering numerous injuries over that period.
A technical and hard-working midfielder, the 26-year-old has frequently been a reported target for Barcelona.
But he is in it for the long-haul at PSG, with his new contract set to keep him in the French capital until he is 31.
The Italy international has started eight of PSG's 11 Ligue 1 matches this term and will likely be key for the remainder of the campaign as Thomas Tuchel's men look to win the club's seventh league title in the past eight seasons.
