Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has refused to rule out a move away from the club amid reported interest from Manchester United, Goal.com reports.

The Red Devils are reportedly considering making a move for Marchisio as an alternative to Cesc Fabregas, who looks set to stay at Barcelona despite United offering the La Liga Champions a club record £35 million.

The Italian midfielder has said that he is flattered by the interest shown by the likes of Manchester United but feels that his immediate future remains with Juventus although he didn’t entirely rule out a move.

“For the past seven years, my name has always come up when the transfer market was discussed,” the midfielder told Tuttosport.

“Obviously, I will not deny that I feel flattered when I see my name being linked with other clubs, including some of the most important and biggest in the world”.

David Moyes has identified United’s midfield as an area that he needs to improve if the club are going to regain their Premier League title this season.

The club have already missed out on Thiago Alcantara, who decided to move to Bayern Munich and look set to fail in their attempts to sign Fabregas, with reports suggesting that the midfielder would prefer to stay at Barcelona.
