PSG announce Marco Verratti contract extension
PSG confirm Marco Verratti contract extension.
After moving up the Pescara levels and signing with PSG in 2012, Verratti has developed into one of the best midfielders in history.
He became the first player to win his eighth Ligue 1 title with the club at the end of the previous campaign, and under Christophe Galtier, he has continued to be an important part of the machine.

The club confirmed Verratti had signed a deal through to 2026 via their official Twitter account, ensuring the 30-year-old will remain in Paris through the Autumn of his career.
Verratti is currently sitting on 395 appearances for the club, the second most in PSG history behind only Jean-Marc Pilorget. His new deal means there is a very real possibility the Italian midfielder finishes as their all-time appearance-maker.
The announcement was made the evening before PSG played their first game after the World Cup break, taking on Strasbourg in Ligue 1. Verratti makes his 396th appearance and gets the chance to win a game as he begins in the base of the midfield alongside Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz.
