Paris saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has named Italian giants Juventus as the one club he would join if he eventually leaves PSG.
The 24-year-old has been linked with moves across Europe all season, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all reportedly interested.
But the Italian international has put a dent in Premier League club's pursuit by saying that he'd prefer a move back to Italy.
Sport quote him as saying: “Italy has a great league. Two teams like Inter and Milan, or Juventus, are capable of spending. We have seen that with Higuain (Juve paid 90m to Napoli). Juventus are one of the four best teams in the world. They have progressed a lot.

“If in the future I leave PSG, I would not have any problem in going to this club, but today I am good where I am.”
He went on to say that at the end of the season he will 'speak with PSG’s board and take the best option for me'.
Verratti has made 32 appearances for PSG so far this season, scoring twice and providing two assists.
