Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has insisted that the club have never thought about selling Claudio Marchisio.
The Italy international has been linked with a move to Monaco and Manchester United in recent weeks, and even has even questioned whether the Bianconeri are keen to keep him this summer.
But the administrator at the Turin side has claimed that the midfielder is a key player.
“Juventus have never thought about selling Marchisio,” Marotta told calciomercato.com. “Not now, not ever.
“In September 2012 the club extended his contract until June 30, 2016, adjusting his salary too.
"I think this is the clearest demonstration of how important Marchisio is for Juventus.
“We would only look at this again if a stratospheric offer, one not in line with the market, was made. But, up to this point in time, that has not happened.”
