Marco Verratti, a midfielder for Paris Saint Germain (PSG), is supposedly not a target for Real Madrid.
Verratti reportedly wants to transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu, per the French site RMC Sport (via The Hard Tackle). He recently discussed a potential move with Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he has a close relationship.
The 30-year-old will not, however, be travelling with Los Merengues to Madrid, Spain’s capital and he is upset over Lionel Messi’s conceivable departure this summer, as the Argentina legend’s contract is expiring this season.
Verratti, who joined PSG from Pescara in 2012 and has a contract that extends until June 2026, is the member of their current team with the longest tenure and his 435 career games put him second on the club’s all-time appearance list, just 22 behind Jean-Marc Pilorget.
There are many midfielders available to Real Madrid and according to MadridUniversal, Toni Kroos has already signed a one-year deal through June 2024, and Luka Modric is also planning to do the same.
Ancelotti has three choices in midfield: Dani Ceballos, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Federico Valverde. Eduardo Camavinga might make a comeback.

Verratti is also looking at the tempting offers from Italy. A to return to his native Italy by Juventus and Inter Milan. And with the former having the advantage if Verratti’s close friend Massimiliano Allegri stays in charge.
Verratti doesn’t prioritise moving to the Middle East. Juve and Inter is not entertaining a move and a move to Saudi Arabia is also a possibility.
Jude Bellingham is nearing an agreement to personal terms with Real Madrid. They aim to reach a nine-figure deal with Borussia Dortmund. This will enhance their midfield ranks this summer.
Toni Kroos and Luka Modric is doubtfull for next season and of the upcoming season they are uncertain and while both players are anticipated to sign short-term contracts.
