Les Parisiens, however, flatly refused to entertain any kind of trade for their player, even if it meant losing out to Barcelona and Veratti. A predicament that only got worse when PSG intervened and took Barcelona’s 31-year-old forward, Neymar, during the same transfer window.

Barcelona expressed interest in signing their last target, Veratti, when he was free to leave PSG last summer, but PSG once again refused to negotiate. Eventually, the midfield player relocated to the Qatari division, where he is currently employed by Al-Arabi.
