THE BIGGER PICTURE: Verratti is one of the founding figures of this successful era for PSG, making almost 400 appearances for the club and contributing 11 goals and 48 assists.
WHAT THEY SAID?: "It gives me great pride to extend my contract with Paris Saint-Germain," the 30-year-old said in a statement on the club's official website. "I arrived in Paris more than 10 years ago, in this city that I consider my second home. I have always received a lot of support from the club and the fans since I started and I am very grateful for that.
"It was obvious to me that my story would continue to be written here. I hope to win many more trophies in the Rouge & Bleu shirt.”
