PSG are refusing to do business with Real Madrid over Marco Verratti's sale.

Verratti is a favourite of Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.

But Marca says PSG have informed Real that they are not interested in selling the young midfielder.

The two clubs enjoy an excellent relationship, and both have avowed to talk directly with each other if one club is interested in any player of the other, without letting agents get in the way.
