PSG midfielder Verratti admits turning down Juventus

PSG midfielder Marco Verratti admits he came close to signing for Juventus.

The Italy international recently penned new terms with PSG.

"It's true I was very close to joining Juventus, but I wanted to play and not be a reserve. At that point I decided to stay at Pescara, but then PSG came and promised me an important role within the team, so I agreed a move to France."
