Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is already planning reinforcements ahead of the summer and wants to meet PSG star again at Stamford Bridge.
According to 90 minutes, The German wants the Blues to bring Paris Saint Germain star Marco Verratti in the Premier League. Chelsea are currently on the rise under Tuchel, who believes the Italian would fit perfectly into his midfield next season.
Verratti has been a constant feature of PSG’s first team since joining the 2012 Ligue 1 giants. The Italian has made almost 350 appearances for PSG and has won seven championship titles, including four home triples.
The Italian was a vital gear in Tuchel’s midfield during the German’s reign in Princes ’Park, and is reportedly open to moving to the Premier League. The player is currently on the sidelines due to a knee injury that has raised suspicions of his participation in the euro.
However, the injury is not expected to have long-term consequences, which will be a relief for Chelsea. The Blues are spoiled for choice in the midfield, but Tuchel is believed to be willing to sacrifice one of his current stars to accommodate Verratti.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool have all expressed interest in the Italian, one of the best central midfielders in the world. However, none of these clubs have been as persistent as Chelsea, making the Blues the favorites to secure the players ’signatures.
The Italian is said to be fascinated by the prospect of playing in London. Chelsea have reached the UEFA Champions League final this season, making the move to Stamford more tempting for Verratti.
The Blues would benefit greatly from the player’s arrival if the move is made during the summer. His experience could prove crucial in the club’s quest to win the Premier League and compete in Europe next season.
