After signing Ruben Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly, Saudi club Al-Hilal have sent representatives to Paris to try and convince Marco Verratti to leave PSG for Saudi Arabia. Al-Ahli are also said to be interested.

No longer untouchable in Paris, will Marco Verratti be the next European star to yield to Saudi Arabia's advances? According to L'Equipe, a delegation from Al-Hilal is in Paris to convince the 30-year-old Italian midfielder, who has been promised a lucrative salary of €50m a year.

Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli want Verratti

Al-Hilal have also reportedly been in contact with PSG to buy out Marco Verratti's last three years of contract, although no offer has yet been made to the Parisian club.

According to Spanish media outlet Relevo, Saudi club Al-Ahli, who will be joined this week by Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, are also interested in Marco Verratti's talents and are negotiating with PSG.
