Pescara teenager Marco Verratti has been rumoured to be chased by a number of big clubs in Europe, but his agent has denied the claims.
Verratti’s agent Donato Di Campli has accused the Serie B champions of creating confusion by claiming that Genoa, Inter, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City are all interested in signing the youngster.
Pescara director Daniele Delli Carri said the highly-rated 19-year-old midfielder was attracting interest from all over Europe.
“We met with Genoa, who want to buy Marco with Inter,” he told Sport Mediaset.
“Juventus also want the player and there is PSG and Manchester City, too. Roma, though, are absolutely not interested.
“We will do what is best for him and for the club. But he must stay another year with us; that is the key to the negotiations.
“The two foreign clubs could be a long-term investment by letting him stay another year in Pescara.”
But Di Campli hit back at Delli Carri, claiming that some of the information he had provided was inaccurate.
“I don’t know anything about this, as nobody told me,” the agent told RadioCalciomercato.
“There are many teams who are tracking him, but at this moment all this talk does nothing but create confusion.
“Some rumours are true, others are not, so I urge great calm. I’d like the boy to be allowed to choose without being rushed or pressurised.”
Verratti, who has drawn comparisons with Andrea Pirlo, was included in Italy’s provisional squad for Euro 2012 but missed out on the final cut.
