Verratti will sign for Paris Saint-Germain, says agent

Marco Verratti's agent has revealed that the Pescara starlet has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain, meaning the midfielder's proposed move to the Parc des Princes could now be completed by the end of the week.

The Delfini has reportedly accepted a bid of approximately 13 million euros for the 19-year-old regista, who had repeatedly stated that his preference was to remain at the Stadio Adriatico for another season before moving to Juventus.

However, with the Bianconeri having refused to increase their bid for his services, Verratti has, according to agent Donato Di Campli, decided to join PSG.

"Right now I am on my honeymoon, having got married on Friday," the player's representative explained. "But we can say that the signing should come early next week or by the end of this one [by July 15].

"Anyway, the guy is willing to say 'yes' to PSG."

Verratti, who is being touted as 'the new Andrea Pirlo', played a key role in Pescara's promotion-winning campaign in Serie B last season and was included in Italy's provisional squad for Euro 2012.
