Verratti, an Italian international, played under current Madrid boss Carlos Ancelotti during the latter's time at PSG.
On Sunday evening, Guillem Balague reported in AS that Real Madrid had agreed terms with Manchester United over a season-long loan for Mexican international striker Javier Hernandez, 26.
Hernandez has scored 59 goals in all competitions for United since joining them from Chivas de Guadalajara in 2010 at a rate of a goal every 139 minutes.
Balague writes that "Real Madrid view him as the perfect back-up to Karim Benzema."
The Mirror's David McDonnell adds that United boss Louis van Gaal has told Hernandez he can leave. The only sticking point may be his £90,000-a-week salary, which United want Madrid to cover for the duration of the loan.
Further news should be expected on this deal as Monday progresses.
