Verratti flattered by Barca link

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti says he is flattered after being linked with Barcelona, but insists he is happy at the Parc des Princes.

Constantly linked with a move away from the club, Verratti has become one of the most coveted young players in world football following his move from Italian minnows Pescara in 2012.

The Catalans are the latest to register their interest in the 22-year-old but Verratti insists he has no intention of departing the French capital any time soon.

"As they say, you never know what the future will bring," Verratti told Goal. "I'm good where I am, and I'm not thinking of changing club, because you know what you are losing but not what you're going to find.

"The day when I no longer feel good in Paris or when the club wants to sell me then I will look at my options, but England, Spain, Italy, it's the same for me. What counts is the project of the clubs.

"Barca are one of the strongest teams in the world. They've been at the top of the game for a while. They're a great team, but I'm happy at PSG. When a team as strong as that takes an interest in you, it makes any player happy. It's true that I like their style of play."
