Manchester United could revive their interest in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti in the summer after scouts watched him in Champions League action earlier this week, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Italian playmaker played the full 90 minutes in a 4-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen, looking impressive in the process.

United have long been linked with the 21-year-old, with rumours suggesting that they were keen to lure him across the Channel last year.

PSG value their man highly, but the Premier League champions are hopeful that they can take advantage of the current competition for a starting place at the Parc des Princes.

Following Yohan Cabaye’s January arrival, a number of the Ligue 1 giants’ stars are said to be anxious that a slip could see them axed from the starting XI.

United are ready to offer Verratti guaranteed action with Moyes desperate to overhaul his current midfield after a difficult opening to the season.

Juventus are also keen on the silky midfielder, and have been watching him closely as well.

Verratti has already been compared to Italian hero Andrea Pirlo due to his range of passing composure on the ball.
