Manchester United target flattered by interest

Published Add your comment

Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has admitted that he is glad to be attracting interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

The Serie A side are yet to receive any official bids for the 27-year-old, with speculation mounting that Manchester United are ready to capture the Italian midfielder.

David Moyes is desperate to acquire a new central midfielder, after having numerous bids for Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas rejected. It is believed the Manchester United manager has set his sights on the 27-year-old playmaker to help fill the void in the Red Devils midfield.

Marchisio has revealed he is flattered at the interest he gets every summer, and has somewhat hinted his future could potentially lie elsewhere.

"Every summer the possibility that I might go away is always talked about," Marchisio told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I'm certainly glad that big European clubs are linked to my name."

The Italian international has spent his whole career at the Serie A champions, albeit a season-long loan move to Empoli in the 2007/08 season.

Marchisio has admitted he his dream of ending his career at Juventus still remains despite the extensive amount of interest he is attracting.

"My dream is to still end my career with Juventus," he added.

"Even if I know that in football, you never know."
