Verratti wants Champions League trophy at PSG

Italian midfielder Marco Verratti has revealed that he dreams of claiming the Champions League trophy with Paris Saint-Germain.

The 24-year-old has been attracting interest from a number of top European clubs, but after signing a five-year deal last year he is focused on achieving big things in Paris.

PSG take a 4-0 lead into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Barcelona on Wednesday, and Verratti is hoping to go all the way this season.

Speaking to Stade 2, Verratti said: "I want to stay. I am part of a project and there are not many like this one in Europe.

"My dream is to win the Champions League here with PSG."

Verratti went on to praise PSG manager Unai Emery, who has shown faith in him, adding: "I must thank the coach because he always made me confident enough to play – that was the only way I was going to get back into the swing of things.

"Now I feel good and I can play three matches in a week without physical problems or fatigue. In modern football, the most important thing is to be physically fit."
