Thomas Tuchel reportedly wants a reunion with PSG midfielder Marco Verratti during the summer transfer window
Tuchel is no fool and he knows that he needs to add a bit more quality to that midfield area, especially in the centre of the pitch and add a midfielder to the squad that can add a few more goals to the attack.
And the manager wants to sign Marco Verratti from former club PSG this summer, according to 90min.
The Italian midfielder has made more than 350 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions since 2012, including two and a half years under the management of Tuchel, and the report claims he is a big fan of Verratti, and would reportedly like to be reunited with him again at Stamford Bridge.
However, PSG have him tied down to a massive contract and have no need to let him leave the club in the transfer window, even for silly money. Meaning that the club will have a battle on their hands to get a deal done.
We have alot of quality in that squad, there is no doubt about that. But to sends a real message to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, they need to sign players like Verratti, who is one of the very best in the game.
It is very unlikely that he will want to leave PSG, that they will want to sell, so he will probably not sign for Chelsea. But if they did, he would bring that sparkle in the centre of midfield that we are lacking right now
