Verratti to Bayern more likely than Madrid or Barca - agent

The 23-year-old's representative admits a move to the Bundesliga champions is possible, but not in the near future as he prepares to sign a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain

Marco Verratti is more likely to join Bayern Munich over Real Madrid or Barcelona, according to his agent, though he insists a move will not happen any time soon.

The midfielder has blossomed into one of Europe's highest-rated since he joined Paris Saint-Germain from Pescara in 2012, which has seen him linked with moves to Manchester United, Madrid and Barca.

Verratti recently revealed his desire to reunite with his former PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti, who will take over at Bayern in the summer, and Di Campli believes a transfer to the Bundesliga champions at some stage in the future is more likely than a move to either La Liga side.

"It would be less complicated for Marco to play for Bayern one day than to join Madrid or Barcelona," he told Corriere dello Sport.

"Both Spanish sides have too many ties with Qatar to do something that could upset PSG."

However, the 23-year-old's representative insists his immediate future remains in the French capital, revealing it is only a matter of time before he will sign an extension, with his current deal due to expire in June 2019 

"We have agreed terms over a new deal," he added.

"It is only a matter of putting it down on paper. Marco will stay with PSG for a long time, at least until 2020.

"This is already the fourth time he has signed a contract renewal since joining PSG.

"He now has to show again that he is worth his wages."
