The Italian was strongly linked with a move to the Catalan giants with Barca desperate to splash the cash.
Marco Verratti has denied asking PSG to leave this summer, and sounds excited about his future with the Ligue 1 leaders.Reports indicated that the Italian worldwide was willing to leave the Parisian side, and was alleged to have even met with Lionel Messi in order to discuss a move to Barcelona.
Marquinhos also said he believes Neymar will do more to bring glory to the Qatar-owned Paris club than its former Brazilian number 10 Ronaldinho. "When it's a big game that's when he shows the most character, the best attitude", Marquinhos said of the 25-year-old Brazilian who joined PSG for a world-record €222 million (RM1.1 billion) in the close season.
"Honestly, this year - for the first time in five years - I wondered if I should continue here".
"People think that I play for PSG for the money, but I could get that elsewhere, too". It's the same with me.
'It was really complicated, ' he added. A lot of things happened that I did not like, among them people from my side. "But I was reassured about the project and the ambitions".
"I hope he'll do even more than Ronaldinho because he's a wonderful player and he always wants to stand up and be counted on the pitch", Marquinhos said.
"The only thing I did was explain to them some things I didn't understand".
Marquinhos and Neymar were on the same gold medal-winning Brazil team at the 2016 Rio Olympics and the defender believes the striker's leadership skills will be an important factor as the club go in search of titles this season. We didn't live up to ourselves as a team that wants to win everything.
