Who would have believed it ? Marco Verratti and Nasser Al Khelaifi played a game of padel together in Doha.
And yet, the president of Paris Saint-Germain must not necessarily be delighted to see one of his club's emblematic players leave.
After a checkered 2022-2023 season, with some controversies over his sometimes criticized lifestyle / memory, Marco was on the move from the start of the summer transfer window. Luis Enrique, the club's new coach for the 2023-2024 season, does not seem to be banking on him. He did not play him during the pre-season and at the start of Ligue 1. Verratti finally joined Al-Arabi in Qatar at the beginning of September, for a sum estimated at 45 million euros.
Obviously without rancor, the president of PSG, who is also the president of Premier Padel, the international circuit of padel, and at the origin of a tournament bringing together many celebrities practicing this sport, seems to have already turned the page on the separation between Verratti and PSG. And that's good.
