Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti will not be leaving the club this summer, according to the player's agent.

Verratti, 20, had been linked with a big-money move back to Serie A, just a year after he swapped Pescara for Paris.

However, the playmaker's agent Donato Di Campli has rejected the rumours, indicating that his client wishes to stay with PSG.

"I confirm what I have said in the past - a lot of money is needed to sign Marco," Donato Di Campli told calciomercato.it.

"No Italian team at this moment in time has what is needed to sign him.

"If we then add the player's desire to stay then I can say with some certainty that he will remain with PSG over the summer."

Verratti himself has indicated his desire for Carlo Ancelotti to remain in charge of PSG, despite reports linking him to a summer move to Real Madrid.

"There are no other coaches like Ancelotti around," Verratti told Sky Sports Italia.

"If he does leave then it will be a heavy loss, both for myself and for my team-mates here at this club."

"I've had very few coaches, but, according to some of my colleagues who have had more, they say they've never had a tactician like him."
