And after the purchase of Angel di Maria from Man United, PSG are set to offload some of their players before the start of the French season.

However, it is unlikely that the Italy international will be sold unless he hands in a transfer request, yet when prompted where he sees his future, the 22-year-old was open to the possibility of moving to play in the Premier League.

“You never know what can happen in the future,” he said.

“I’m doing well where I am and I’m not thinking about changing clubs.

“I’ll begin to consider leaving on the day that I no longer feel good at PSG or when the club decides to sell me.

“England, Spain and a return to Italy are possible options. The project is the most important thing.”

Verratti joined PSG from Pescara in the summer of 2012 dubbed as the ‘next Andrea Pirlo’, and despite his young age became an integral part of the Ligue-1 champions.

Last season, Verratti made 48 appearances, scoring three goals and supplying 11 assists.
