Marco Verratti (30), a French Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) midfielder and teammate of Korean men’s national soccer team ace Lee Kang-in (22), transferred to Qatar Al Arabi.
PSG said through the club’s official channel on the 14th (Korean time), 메이저사이트“Verratti signed with Al Arabi after 11 years. He is a player who left an indelible mark on our history. We wish him all the best for the remainder of his career. “He said.
Verratti left Italy’s Pescara in 2012 and settled in PSG. As a central playmaker, he contributed greatly to PSG establishing itself as an emerging powerhouse in the French league.
He participated in a total of 416 games, contributed to 295 wins, and shared 30 championship trophies. He was recorded as the second most played player in PSG history.
However, starting this season, PSG built a team centered on young players such as Lee Kang-in and Marco Asensio. In this process, Verratti’s position deteriorated from previous years.
Leading clubs such as Manchester United (England) and Bayern Munich (Germany), who are aware of Verratti’s skills and are now in their early 30s, have sent love calls. Verratti’s final choice was to go to Qatar.
According to the British media ‘Guardian’, the transfer fee is 45 million euros (about 64.1 billion won). According to the media, this amount is the most expensive in Qatari league history. Al Arabi announced that they had signed a three-year contract with Verratti.
