PSG Mercato: The reasons for the extension of Marco Verratti
Quoted in the press release of Paris Saint-Germain, Marco Verratti revealed the reasons for his new signing. The 30-year-old midfielder is playing his tenth season with the red and blue team this year.

The midfielder is proud to continue his career and hopes to win more titles with PSG. “It is a great pride to extend my contract with Paris Saint-Germain. It has been more than 10 years since I arrived in Paris, in this city that I consider my second home. I have always received a lot of support from the club and the fans since my debut and I am very grateful for that. It was obvious to me that my story would continue to be written here. I hope to win many more trophies with the red and blue shirt”, he confided.
