Manchester United target not going anywhere.
Juventus have told Manchester United that star midfielder Claudio Marchisio is not for sale and won’t be leaving the club this summer, according to Sky Sports.
Both United and French big spenders Monaco have been linked with making a move for the 27-year-old, but the Italian club’s director general, Beppe Marotta, has denied that the Serie A champions are looking to do a deal with anyone.
“We won’t sell him,” Marotta told Italian website calciomercato.com.
“It seems to me that the clearest demonstration about Marchisio’s importance to Juventus was the contract renewal we signed in September 2012 until June 2017 which changed his salary.
“We would only review the situation if a sensational offer arrived that wasn’t in line with the market and that, until this moment, hasn’t arrived.”
Marchisio is currently on duty with the Italian national side at the Confederations Cup and last week spoke of his pride at being linked with side’s of United’s calibre, sparking speculation regarding his future.
“There are things to be proud of, but I am not sure if they are true,” he’d said from Italy’s training camp in Brazil.
“I have not heard from anyone at Manchester United or Monaco.”
