Marchisio: It's not about the money

Claudio Marchisio has rubbished claims he questioned Juventus' belief in him to get a better contract at the club.

The midfielder admitted at the weekend that reported interest from Manchester United and Monaco made him 'proud', and also conceded that he was unsure whether the Bianconeri still found him important.

However, the Italy international has insisted that those remarks were not a way to force the Turin giants to offer him a better deal.

Talking briefly to Sky Sport Italia, the 27-year-old said, “It is not for this reason. For me, it is not about money.”

Director general Beppe Marotta reiterated on Monday that the Old Lady would 'never' sell Marchisio.
