“I don’t think it will be long before they come to an agreement because they’re both happy here.”
The Italian midfielder also made a bold statement and claims he doesn’t think there’s a better team than PSG.
“Neymar and Mbappe are part of one of the best teams in the world,” Verratti continued. “In truth, I don’t think there’s a better team than PSG. We can write history by winning the Champions League.”
PSG played dominant football last season and played their first Champions League final, where they suffered defeat against Bayern Munich.
“I love this club,” he said. “To play for nine years in the same team at this level is not something that many players can say. The important thing for me, though, is to win at PSG,” Verratti said.
The 28-year-old further talked about PSG’s upcoming match against league rivals Olympiacos Lyon. Verratti appreciated Lyon’s brand of football and said PSG have to show that they are the better team.
“OL are a team that I love to watch play,” Verratti confessed. “The play a pretty brand of football.
“But we have to show that we’re the better team. I think we’re the favourites but we still have to prove it,” he concluded.
