Verratti and De Rossi swap deal ruled out, says agent

The agent of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has ruled out his client returning to his native Italy in a swap deal with Roma's Daniele De Rossi.

Reports in Corriere dello Sport suggested that a deal was being discussed that would see the two players move on loan until the end of the current season. Donato Di Campli, who represents the former Pescara man, has refuted these claims, though, and believes the 20-year-old is a key component of Carlo Ancelotti's side.

"There is no truth in it. Marco will remain in Paris, he’s untouchable, I’ve said that before and I say it again," he told TMW. "A sheep is difficult to recall once it leaves the flock. Marco is at the center of a project at PSG, and he’s playing regularly. I honestly don’t think that he could leave."

De Rossi has been in and out of the Roma side after a reported dispute with coach Zdenek Zeman, while Carlo Ancelotti has previously admitted interest in the player.
