Manchester United target Claudio Marchisio has announced his delight at seeing his name being linked with Europe's elite clubs.
The Italian midfielder has been stringently linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, as new boss David Moyes looks to replace the recently retired Paul Scholes.
However Marchisio - whose contract runs out in 2016 - has stated he wants to remain at current club Juventus for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to Tuttosport, the 27-year-old said: "For the past seven years, my name has always come up when the transfer market was discussed.
"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.
"This is proof that I'm doing a good job and that others value what I do. It makes me proud that there are teams that rate me.
"However, I have not talked to anyone and there are no concrete offers. I spoke with Juventus and they told me I'm still wanted. My desire is to stay here and win more trophies.
"Then again, you never know what will happen in football. I would not be the first player to leave his boyhood club..."
Moyes is also said to be targeting Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye.
