14 years, i.e. two seven years. Besides being one of the Parisians who have worn the Paris Saint-Germain shirt the most times, Marco Verratti will also be one of, if not the number one, who has played there the most years. As mentioned on November 12 by The teamThe Italian midfielder has agreed with his club to extend his lease in the capital for two years, until 2026.
The only thing missing is communication from PSG to formalize this good news. Arriving in Paris to everyone’s surprise in 2012 at the age of 19, the native of Pescara, if no extension of his contract happens before then, will leave the capital club at the age of 33.
Absent from recovery at PSG like Donnarumma
Yesterday morning for the resumption of Parisian training, after the truce of three good weeks generated by the World Cup, the national team was not present, as was his compatriot Gianluigi Donnarumma. The two Italians who played two friendlies with Italy (on the 16th against Albania 3-1 and on the 20th in Austria 0-2) were allowed to return a little later than the other non-globalists (Ramos, Bernat, Ruiz, Rico , Renato Sanches, Mukiele, Ekitike) and some young people used to use the professional group like Zaire-Emery and Bitshiabu and others from the training center who found Christophe Galtier and his staff in a winter mood.
Each of them had a physical program to follow during this three-week break to return to training in the best possible condition before launching this second part of the unprecedented season as it starts with a French Christmas Day. PSG host Strasbourg on December 28 before traveling to Lens on January 1. Yesterday, the Parisians were allowed to work indoors before some exercises and games on the ground. Presnel Kimpembe, still hampered by an Achilles tendon injury, finally returned during the day and was eligible for an afternoon session. The 2018 World Champion will not be operational immediately.
The workforce will grow as the Mondialists return from the ten days of leave initially granted. The first to return should be Keylor Navas, the Costa Rica goalkeeper who was eliminated on December 1st. The Parisians have a new training session this Thursday.
