The talented young midfielder was snapped up by free-spending PSG last summer as they went on an extensive recruitment drive. They also made big-money bids for other Serie A stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Thiago Silva but Verratti has made a limited impact in the Ligue 1 as he has only been allowed nine starts.
Many Italian media outlets were therefore of the opinion that PSG would let the 20-year-old prodigy return to the Serie A in the January transfer window with Juventus considered as heavy favourites for the player's signature. Ultimately, the midfielder did not leave and chose to stick around with the Parisiens, hoping to break into the star-studded first team line-up in the near future.
The ex-Pescara player was in the headlines on Wednesday night as he scored a late equaliser for the Azzurri to salvage a 1-1 draw against Holland. In the aftermath of the game, he was quickly quizzed about his plans for the future.
He told Sky Sport Italia: "I made the right decision in going to PSG. I feel settled there playing alongside the great champions that we have, but it is obvious that my dream is to play in Serie A."
When asked as to the likelihood of a move to Turin, he also gave a cunning answer to deflect away any questions linking him to the current Serie A leaders.
"Do I watch Juventus Channel on TV at home? No, I'm waiting for a Pescara Channel to arrive," he answered.
