Barca's pursuit of Verratti has become protracted due to Paris Saint-Germain's reluctance to sell the midfielder, but technical secretary Robert Fernandez is happy to remain patient.
New Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said on Monday he was relieved to have star player Lionel Messi playing on the same team and not playing against him. Obviously we've had discussions but to ask for "this player", no.
Valverde said: "I am concentrating on working with the players that we have".
He went further..."If it happens, then that would be great". That's how I work, with the players I have here.
Barca president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has already confirmed the club's interest in landing Italy worldwide, Verratti, even stating that the player himself wants to move to Camp Nou. "Many names get linked and the summer is long, but for me, the important thing is to get the best out of the players I have". It's very hard to make it better, because of the high standard of players that we have.
Questioned on Barca's interest in Brazilian midfielder, Paulinho, Valverde stuck to the same line, saying: "It's hard to improve what we have in the team".
Asked about potential midfield targets Fernandez added: "It would be good if he could play in all three of the midfield positions because if he can only play in one it limits his opportunities".
"We're not closed to any options until the last day but I think that's the same for any club".
