Juve man not going anywhere despite reports.
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has given the clearest indication that his future lies in Turin by rejecting a move to Manchester United and claiming that he is sick of talking about his future, talkSPORT reports.
United boss David Moyes has endured a fruitless summer so far this season and has been frustrated again just weeks after failing with bids for both Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara.
Alex Ferguson had said that he’d been looking for more creativity, something which Moyes has concurred with, and one player that continually topped that list is Marchisio.
The 27-year-old had been seen as the ideal replacement for Nani and Anderson, as both had looked set to move on this summer and the money from their sales could fund the bulk of the Italian’s £21 million fee.
Juventus were keen to make it know that they wanted to keep the player in place but United’s reported persistence not looks to have failed to pay off even though reports suggested that conversations between the two sides are at an early stage.
The Italian international has become a crucial member of both his club and international side. A good dribbler with a strong work ethic, Marchisio would have added a whole new dimension of depth to United’s squad and would represent a key part of the reported re-shuffle that looks set to take place over the summer.
“I am staying here. I am happy at Juventus, but the fact that rumours keep emerging around me every summer is starting to get on my nerves,” he said.
