Napoli have made Marco Verratti a ‘monstrous offer’ to sign the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, according to his agent.
The 20-year-old surprised many with his assured performances in his debut season with PSG, and is reported to have attracted the interest of a number of clubs, including Real Madrid and Juventus.
Verratti’s representative Donato Di Campli had previously revealed that improved contract negotiations with the Ligue 1 champions are ongoing.
PSG are thought to be ready to increase the Italian’s wages but Di Campli claims that Napoli have presented Verratti with an alternative should talks break down.
“We are still some way off an agreement. The negotiations need to continue,” Di Campli told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Talks will continue, even if I’m not that optimistic or hopeful. The fact is that Marco still has four years to go on his contract here.
“However, he is not short of alternatives. Just this morning a monstrous offer arrived on behalf of Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
“We will meet with PSG again next week. I need to speak with Marco and his family, then we will see.”
