Verratti, Marquinhos, Matuidi could leave PSG due to FFP hiccup, Juve and Inter standing by

It appears that even PSG can’t just spend money when and how they want.

This morning’s edition of l’Equipe claims (via our Italian page) that the likes Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi, Adrien Rabiot and Javier Pastore could be sold to satisfy Financial Fair Play.

​Having had a spendthrifty summer (by their standards), the Ligue 1 champions have taken their outgoings to €132 million after splurging on Julian Draxler and Manchester United target Goncalo Guedes in the January window.

This could force them to sell: Inter are very interested in Marquinhos (Piero Ausilio’s number one target in defence), as well as Marco Verratti, Suning’s dream acquisition to put the club back among Europe’s elite. Juventus love the youngster, too… as well as Adrien Rabiot and Blaise Matuidi, who were both not-so-coincidentally told that the club was up for renewing their deals. A chance to raise the price?

Beyond those two clubs, Milan and Roma are very much hoping to nab someone like Hatem Ben Arfa, who has failed to make an impact in Paris but was excellent at Nice. Otherwise, recent ACL tear victim Javier Pastore is also being monitored, his great form back at Palermo still fresh in the memories of many a Calcio club...
