Pescara-born, Verratti started with his local team and, under the tutelage of Zdenek Zeman, helped them return to Serie A in 2012. French giants PSG were impressed and signed him soon after, at the age of 19.

He has since matured into an outstanding playmaker. Verratti was named in UEFA's all-star squad for the 2013 European Under-21 Championship and has since gone on to win more than 30 caps.
