Paris Saint-Germain have reached an agreement with Marco Verratti over a contract extension, reports Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
PSG gaffer Christopher Galtier stated earlier that the talks with the Italian midfielder were ongoing over a renewal.
Verratti’s current deal expires in 2024, and he is now set to extend his deal for a further two years.
The 30-year-old is a household name among Les Parisiens’ fans, having been at the club since 2012.
Not only is he the second-highest appearance holder (398) for PSG, Verratti is also the player with the most number of titles in the French capital club’s history.
Verratti has again been a key cog in the midfield under Galtier this season, making 20 appearances in all competitions.
Holding a WhoScored rating of 7.18, the Azzurri international has been pivotal in PSG’s unbeaten run across all competitions this term.
However, he will be hoping to help his side dominate the Ligue 1 upon the resumption of club football, with PSG currently sitting five points clear at the top of the table.
Les Parisiens also face Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 in February.
PSG are currently working on Lionel Messi’s contract extension, whose deal expires in 2023.
There has been widespread speculation about his potential move to MLS outfit Inter Miami next summer, but PSG are determined to tie him to a new deal.
