Juventus and Barcelona join the race for Verratti

Juventus and Barcelona are among five clubs in the race to sign Verratti

Juventus and Barcelona are among five clubs in the race to sign PSG playmaker Marco Verratti, reports Il Corriere dello Sport.

The Italy international, 24, is one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe on the back of his stellar displays for PSG over the past few seasons.

Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Monaco are all keen on Verratti, but they will face competition for his signature from Barca and Juve.

Barca chiefs believe Verratti would be the ideal long-term replacement for Andres Iniesta, who turns 33 this year, while Juve are willing to spend big to bolster their midfield ahead of next term.
