FootMercato reported that French PSG and Qatar club Al-Arabi have reached an agreement on the transfer of midfielder Marco Verratti.

Al-Arabi is negotiating with the representatives of 30-year-old Italian striker Mario Balotelli about the financial terms of his contract.

Marco Verratti has established himself as a prominent figure in the world of football, known for his exceptional skills and strategic prowess on the field. Hailing from Italy, Verratti’s journey began with Pescara before making a significant impact at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in Ligue 1. With remarkable ball control, precise passing, and an innate ability to dictate the tempo of a match, he has become a linchpin in PSG’s midfield and a vital asset for the Italian national team. Verratti’s contributions have garnered praise from fans and experts alike, solidifying his reputation as a midfield maestro and a key player in contemporary football.

Verratti has been playing for Paris Saint-Germain since 2007, when the team was still playing in Ligue 2. Last season, he made one assist in 38 matches; at the end of December, the midfielder extended his contract with PSG until 2026. Transfermarkt estimates his current market value at €40 million.
