Man United transfers: Juventus won’t sell Claudio Marchisio
Man United transfers: Juventus director general Beppe Marotta says the Turin outfit won't sell Claudio Marchisio this summer
Juventus won’t consider selling talisman Claudio Marchisio this summer amid Manchester United interest, according to the club’s director general Beppe Marotta.
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.
However, Marotta is adamant the tenacious midfielder won’t be leaving the Turin outfit after he penned a five-year deal with the Italian champions in 2012.
“We won’t sell him,” Marotta told Calcio Mercato.
“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.”
Last week, Marchisio admitted he was flattered by interest from the Red Devils but reiterated his desire to remain at Juventus beyond the summer.
“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.”
United target Marchisio has scored has scored 28 goals and made 23 assists for Juventus.
