Juventus rule out Claudio Marchisio move to Liverpool

first_img “We have renewed with him, our focus is strong and I think Claudio’s first thought is to finish his career here. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers.” Marchisio, a Juve youth product, signed a five-year contract in July to remain with the Old Lady until June 2020. Marotta also spoke of turning down offers for coveted France international Paul Pogba. “There were offers from other clubs formalised, but we have rejected them because Paul is the heritage of the club,” Marotta said. “Maybe we have loaded him with many responsibilities, but this will help him to become a leader.” Marchisio has been linked with a move to Anfield to work under new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, but Marotta believes the 29-year-old is going nowhere – despite the Bianconeri having received “several offers”. “We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying – not selling,” Marotta told Premium Sport shortly before Juve’s 0-0 Serie A draw at Inter Milan on Sunday evening. Italy midfielder Claudio Marchisio is not interested in joining Liverpool and wants to finish his career with Juventus, according to the Turin club’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
