Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Calciomercato, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Italy international is being offered a way out of the Parisian club this summer.

The same report says that Verratti has already met with new PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, but the German reportedly told the Italian to lose weight.

The story says that Verratti’s future is now very much in the air and that he has been offered to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will make an official bid to sign the 25-year-old this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The Red Devils have already wrapped up deals to bring in both Brazilian midfielder Fred and young full-back Diogo Dalot this summer.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season, and the Red Devils will be looking to try and challenge for the Premier League title next term.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
