Man Utd target Marchisio

Italian sites are claiming Manchester United’s interest in Juventus star Claudio Marchisio will be revived this summer.

Ironically, it is the arrival of Paul Pogba on a free transfer from Manchester that could push Marchisio towards Old Trafford.

Pogba’s stunning season has prompted Antonio Conte to change his system so he can accommodate both the French youngster and Marchisio in a 3-5-1-1.

However, Marchisio is not entirely happy in this support role and according to Sport Mediaset he could be considering a transfer away from Turin.

This is certainly not the first time Manchester United have shown an interest in the Italian international, but before now all offers had been turned down point blank.

The 27-year-old grew up in the Juventus youth academy and only had a brief loan spell at Empoli in his career.

His sale would fund numerous other signings, as Marchisio’s market value is thought to be around €30m – approximately £27m.
