Paris Saint Germain director Jean Claude Blanc has dismissed efforts to sign midfielder Marco Verratti this summer, according to talkSPORT.
The attacking playmaker has been a target of Manchester United in recent days after the Premier League champions realised they will not be signing Barcelona spare part Cesc Fabregas this summer.
Verratti was one of a number of PSG players who impressed last season as the capital club rose to the top of French football once again after big money was invested in the side.
The Italian has every attribute in his locker that United are missing from their side and so the North West club were set to make a big money offer but Blanc has laughed off the idea of selling their man.
“Marco is not on the market,” Blanc told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Marco is under contract with us for another four years and we are not obliged to do anything. We are pleased with his first season with us and we want to demonstrate our faith.”
There has been talk of contract renewal talks breaking down but Blanc added: “I repeat that Verratti is not for sale. It is therefore a waste of time to even start talking about transfer fees.
“Marco will stay here with us for some time.”
