Marco Verratti is heading closer to Madrid. The Italian reggista is Real Madrid's main priority for the midfield line and Carlo Ancelotti wants to coach him again after their season together over at Paris Saint-Germain. According to Tuttosport, Real Madrid will be able to sign Verrati for around 30M€, offering him 2.5M€/year. Real Madrid's offer would reportedly be impossible to reject both for PSG and Verratti, who wants to play for Ancelotti again. PSG also need the money after UEFA punished them for the Financial Fair Play, and they have already spent 50M€ this summer on Brazilian defender David Luiz.

The truth is that Real Madrid need to sign a midfielder, and Verratti certainly is the most interesting prospect rumored to be on Real's shortlist. Neither Kroos nor Pogba, Ramires or Vidal can't play as deep as Verratti, and it should be noted that Carlo Ancelotti had faith on him for that Pirlo-like position.
