Marco Verratti believes he was right to ignore interest from Barcelona last summer.
Reports in Spain heavily linked the Italy midfielder with a big-money move to the Nou Camp, but he decided against trying to force through a switch.
Verratti was rewarded with the Ligue 1 title last weekend, while PSG lifted the League Cup in March. They face Caen in a French Cup semi-final on Wednesday.© Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited PSG midfielder Marco Verratti (right) attracted serious interest from Barcelona last summer

And with a domestic treble now a strong possibility, Verratti believes his decision to remain in France has been justified.
'I'm very happy with the choice I made and I'm all the more convinced of that now,' he told Canal+.
'I really want to stay here. I feel very good here and I want to win, which is what everyone expects.'
Verratti also had his say on former PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti, who he would like to work with again at international level.© Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Carlo Ancelotti has been out of work since being sacked by Bayern Munich in September

Ancelotti is under consideration for the Italy job, although Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is believed to be No 1 choice.
'I started playing in the Champions League with him (Ancelotti),' Verratti added. 'He really helped me a lot in terms of my head.
'He helped me outside of football, and he is still an important man for me. We'll see if he comes to Italy. I'd like him to take over the national team.'
