Manchester United & Barcelona Should Make A Move For This Italian Midfield Maestro

Marco Verratti is one of those few midfielders currently in world football who, if given the platform, look like emulating someone like a Xavi or to an extent Pirlo. The type of midfielders who are slowly becoming less in numbers given the huge amount of class and talent usually associated with players like these.

Verratti has shown most of the traits which do set him apart from the midfielders of this generation. His astute passing ability enhanced with the near perfect awareness of what is transpiring around him and his reading of the game is topped with the calm and crystal clear mind which was associated with someone like Xavi.

And while PSG are ambitious and it is no fault of theirs that other than a couple of teams, no other club can give them a tough fight in the Ligue 1, it is a pity seeing Verratti plying his trade day in day out at the peak of his career in France.

PSG’s embarrassing exit at the hands of Barcelona might have finally knocked some sense back into him regarding the French side’s inability to dominate world football as of now and if he decided to make a move there will not be a dearth of clubs who will be willing fork out whatever is needed to secure his signature.


It is obvious Jose Mourinho has the funds and the support of the board to bring about wholesale changes to the squad at Old Trafford. Pogba’s transfer made it clear that he will not be beating around the bush when it came to signing players who would help United get back on the pedestal from where they have been shaken off in the last couple of years.

The dream midfield of Verratti and Pogba would make them the best midfield pair in Europe and something which will appeal to the fans and the club hierarchy.



The player often likened to Xavi taking up the mantle of Xavi will be only right and fitting. Barcelona have failed to cover for the Spanish legend after he called it quits at Nou Camp and signing someone like Verratti would be a good start to overhauling the midfield once again.

The likes of Gomes, Rafinha and Suarez don’t look cut out for the long haul and even if they are, the Catalans can ill afford to wait for so long and they need a player who can come in and change the complexion of the team immediately.
