Claudio Marchisio says he is “proud” to be linked with Manchester United but insists the Red Devils have not contacted the Juventus midfielder.

The Italy international has been one of the driving forces behind Juve’s recent success, helping the Turin outfit win back-to-back Serie A titles in 2012 and 2013.

The 27-year-old, who came through the club’s youth ranks before making his first-team debut in 2006, scored six goals and made one assist in 29 top-flight appearances this term.

But Marchisio rubbished speculation that he has spoken to Monaco or United and revealed he plans to sit down and hold talks with the reigning Italian champions.

“There are things to be proud of, but I am not sure if they are true,” Marchisio told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I have not heard from anyone at Manchester United or Monaco.

“When I talk with my club everything will become clearer.”

Marchisio is currently on international duty with Italy at the Confederations Cup, and the midfielder is focusing on the tournament and not his future.

“Now I only think of the Confederations Cup. That is all that is important at the moment,” added Marchisio.

United target Marchisio has scored has scored 28 goals and made 23 assists for Juventus.
