Verratti was unveiled at PSG yesterday.
"PSG were the only club who really chased me with insistence and I told my agent that they were my first choice," he stated. "It was easy to choose Paris.
"There is more faith abroad in youngsters, but there is not only Italy for Italians. I didn't hesitate for a second in accepting this offer.
"I'm proud to be here, but I think Italian clubs should point more towards youth.
"I still haven't achieved what the champions already at this club have, but I want to demonstrate that I can do well by giving my best in each game."
