Xavi: 'Verratti would adapt perfectly if he was at Barcelona'
The Barça legend revealed that he's also a fan of the Italian international
During an interview in the French TV Show Canal Football Club, Xavi talked about PSG’s midfield ace Marco Verratti. The former FC Barcelona captain believes that the 23 year-old would be a perfect addition to Luis Enrique’s versatile squad due to his style of play and incredible vision.
"I like watching him play. I like his vision of the game, his passing game. He almost never loses the ball. He's a player of exceptional ability. He would adapt perfectly if he was playing at Barcelona."
Xavi joins the players and experts that back his signing by Barcelona, although the Parisian club wouldn't make things easy. The Italian himself has discussed about Barca in the past, praising the style of play and saying he'd like to play in the Catalan club one day.
