Verratti: I could retire at PSG

Italy international Marco Verratti has hinted that he could spend the rest of his career with his current side Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old won his fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title with the French Champions this season and says he's happy to stay in the French capital.

"If I feel like I do now, I don't want to change teams because I don't know how I'll find it elsewhere," he told RMC Sport. "Of course, there are other very strong teams, but PSG can become that way too.

"I'm already playing for a great team in a great city, so I don't see why I should leave. It's possible that I'll stay here for my whole career.

"When I first came here I didn't get on too well for the first months, I found the city very big. People are very, very cold compared to Italians.

"But now I think maybe I'll live here when I finish my career. My son was born here, I feel good in Paris."

Verratti has missed the last several weeks due to a groin injury and it is unclear whether he will play a part in Italy's Euro 2016 campaign, which kicks off against Belgium on 13 June.
