Juventus GM Marotta explains Verratti transfer failure

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has explained their failed summer pursuit of Marco Verratti.

Verratti is now starring in France with PSG after leaving Pescara.

Marotta said: "Verratti? Juventus signed Paul Pogba on a free transfer and we are enhancing Luca Marrone, two excellent talents who we believe in a lot.

"Unfortunately we couldn't spend €12m on Verratti. It's the same old story of financial restraints."
