The agent of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti reportedly tells Manchester United that his client is available for transfer this summer.

Manchester United have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti this summer.

United boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be looking for further additions to his midfield this summer, having already agreed a deal to sign Brazil international Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Verratti was one of the names on Mourinho's list of targets, and Italian outlet Calciomercato reports that the 25-year-old's agent Mino Raiola has told United that he could be available.

The Italy international is reportedly keen to leave PSG this summer following a meeting with new manager Thomas Tuchel, who is alleged to have told the combative midfielder to lose weight.

Verratti was heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes last summer too, but ended up staying in the French capital and helping PSG to a domestic treble.
