Marchisio awaits Monaco offer

Monaco are on a spending spree and Juventus are thought to be awaiting an official €25m bid for Claudio Marchisio.

The midfielder grew up in the Bianconeri youth academy and had been untouchable until this summer, when Paul Pogba exploded on to the scene.

Manchester United have also been linked with Marchisio, but Monaco are emerging as contenders for his signature.

Newly-promoted into Ligue 1 under Coach Claudio Ranieri, Monaco have already spent approximately €120m this week thanks to billionaire owner Dmitry Ryboloviev.

They signed Radamel Falcao from Atletico Madrid for €50m, plus Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez from Porto for a combined €70m.
