?Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has once again had to respond to speculation surrounding a proposed move to Barcelona. The Italian has responded insisting that he is very happy in Paris.
Verratti was in action against Real Madrid in the Champions League where PSG were beaten 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu. PSG conceded twice in the final ten minutes after going in front in the first-half. A Cristiano Ronaldo double ensured the Parisians went home empty handed.
Following their Champions League defeat, Verratti was asked about the speculation surrounding his future and whether any plans to move to Catalonia were still on the cards:
“Barcelona? I don’t know,” Verratti told Premium Sport (via Goal). “I am happy here in Paris.”

“I think 1-1 was fair for the first half,” Verratti said. “After the break, I think we deserved to win, but we lost 3-1.
“We’ve already had teams come back against us twice in the past, so we can do it ourselves. We’re disappointed, but there’s still another game to come.”
