very mature

No coming in here saying:  verratti is definitely strong, but he is overrated is very mature.

Why is he overrated then? Explain us first instead of coming in here making those bold statements.

Don't suppose Bayern care. The club is run well and they are one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Their hierachy want and expect success, so they will have goals to win every trophy next season and in the future, including the CL. However, with Robben, Ribery, Alonso and Lahm all reaching the latter stages of their careers, it will be difficult for them to replace those players. Bayern haven't impressed me for a couple of seasons now, and with aging players they will have to either choose to recruit from within or spend big (which their board has always been against doing) for top players. It's not a definite, but I see Bayern slipping away from the top clubs around Europe, and ending up lagging behind Utd, Real, Barca, Juve, maybe even Chelsea too if we invest well. I just think they've relied too much on their academy to produce players, and their reluctance to spend big will be their downfall. We know how stubborn Bayern's owners can be, so we will see. 

Alonso will probably announce his retirement real soon so Carlo needs to find another good midfielder, and he knows Verratti from PSG so...it is possible.

What it does (and excellently) we all know, now I want to focus is what Verratti not know or can not do for the most obvious physical limitations that technicians.
Obviously zero physical impact, football is a democratic sport because Verratti with its height from Papa Smurf other sports could not even practice them, but the fact remains that in every physical duel Verratti be surmounted. Always for the same reasons aerial game we never mind, because That has short legs did not progress, nor change of pace because it is not even one of those dwarfs super sprint thighs and calves by 30 pounds each. Verratti not jump a man since 1998, showed 1 in league goal as exceptional in both the short play, it has no long distance transition solutions. Because always starts from a situation of serious physical inferiority well as the recovery phase ball is below expectations: too many fouls, even stupid and very few balls recovered (so much so that before the defense do not put it more, even in case of outbreak of Ebola in team )

Does that sound like someone who does not know or can not do so many things can be called an absolute level player?
he is great, but he isn't Xavi, Fabregas or pirlo!

I wonder if psg would interest swapping Costa for Verratti 

I cant see Diego wanting to go there tho. Think he wants the Spanish life again if China doesn't come off.

But no harm in asking him eh!

Not too keen about these sudden links of him promised to Mounure in summer move!

With PSG getting Draxler and seems Guedes it looks like they have to sell some to keep in line with FFP.

APPARENTLY Matuidi and Rabiot are off to Juve and Verratti and Marquinhos are on the market.

If we really do want to get players thats going to take us to the next level and be fit and around awhile then we need to stand up to the plate and pay up instead of trying to lowball.

lol a lot of bullshit..

zero physical impact? how many games of Verratti have you seen? He is very good in defense, has the best sliding tackle that I have ever seen. I don't know how many players can do this against Hazard or Messi

There are not playmakers so good in defense as Verratti and not many CM's. Obviously, you make yourself be fooled by its height. In arial duels he is not a specialist, but neither is a total crap.

No pace really? are you serious or a troll? 

How you call this? 2:39 He has been able to reach Messi acceleration and to tackle him. 

again against Jese 4:18. Both Messi and Jese are really fast, especially Messi has one of the most devastating acceleration in football.

"Verratti not jump a man since 1998" What? This is football not the high jump lol. 

"has no long distance transition solutions". The bullshit of the year. He is not like Pirlo in this aspect but he is very good in long balls, more or less like Xavi but PSG plays a possession football. The problem is that the players of PSG waste a lot of chances as you can see. And of course he recovers many balls, something like 41 tackles won and 11 interceptions in 16 games in Ligue 1 this season. I don't know how you can say that he is a great player if he can't do nothing, because as you have described him, it sounds like a useless player who can't do nothing and he is very far from this. Verratti rarely loses a ball, even if pressed by 3 men, it's virtually immune to pressure because he has a tight control second only to that of Messi. It's almost impossible to steal the ball from him. 3 years ago sometimes he was too sure of himself and he used to make unnecessary dribbles but since that this happens very rarely. It's true that takes yellows but mainly for protests.

Can he and Kante play in a midfield together? They are both really short. Add that to the fact that half our team is under 6'0 I think if we want to replace Magic, we need a taller CM mind that Veratti
