Marco Verratti admits Barcelona interest, decides to stay with PSG

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has admitted that there was "something" to the reports linking him with a move to Barcelona, but he has decided to stay in Ligue 1.

The Spanish giants have held a long-standing interest in the Italy international, but the 24-year-old insists that he is happy playing in the French capital.

"Barcelona? There was something, but that was as far as it went," Verratti told Sky Sport Italia. "We didn't have any other negotiations.

"I decided to stay on this path and I'm happy for it."

Verratti also denied that the club's decision to sign Neymar, who completed his world-record €222 million move to PSG on Thursday, had influenced him at all.

"Did Neymar change my mind? I [decided] way before," Verratti said. "I never knew that Neymar would come here."
