David Moyes has certainly been linked with a myriad of midfield additions and interest in 27 year old Italian international Marchisio is nothing new but the launching of a tangible bid is a fresh development in the Old Trafford side’s push for much needed January acquisitions.

Man United have offered €25m for Marchisio and such a bid may well tempt Juventus boss Antonio Conte, who may be encouraged to sell players in order to balance the books having failed to secure a spot in the last 16 of the Champions League.

With Frenchman Paul Pogba maturing into a world class performer and Chilean Arturo Vidal continuing to consistently impress there is perhaps a chance that Conte would consider offers for Marchisio, not least as veteran Andrea Pirlo could well be offered a new contract by the Turin side, such has been the influence the Italian international has had on proceedings this term.

With Tom Cleverley continuing to struggle for form there is a growing need to bring in fresh central midfield options. Anderson may well be sold as he appears to add no value, Marouane Fellaini didn’t impress before he was sidelined with injury, Ryan Giggs could well retire in the summer though luckily Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher have returned from their respective periods out with injury and illness.
