Claudio Marchisio is on the verge of leaving Juventus for MLS or the Chinese Super League, according to reports.
The midfielder has gone from future captain and fan favourite to benchwarmer, managing only 13 appearances this season.
His wife posted a cryptic message about “tolerance” and “respect” to Coach Max Allegri via social media after Marchisio was dropped for the Derby della Mole against Torino.
Now multiple sources claim ‘Principino’ is seriously considering a summer exit from his hometown club, the only side he has ever played for.
Marchisio already stated he could not play for another Italian team, so a move abroad seems inevitable.
Major League Soccer in America or a lucrative switch to China are the main alternatives right now, but others in Europe could come forward.
He just turned 32 and is under contract with Juve until June 2020.
