Marchisio rejects Roma swap

Claudio Marchisio has committed his future to Juventus after links emerged with Serie A rivals Roma.

Giallorossi sporting director Walter Sabatini has admitted his admiration for the Italian international.

Given Juve’s interest in Mirko Vucinic, it didn’t take long for rumours of a possible swap deal to emerge.

“It’s nice to know that a club like Roma rate me,” the midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“However, I haven’t had any contact with them and I only recently extended my contract at Juventus.”

Turin-born Marchisio, 25, is a product of the Juve youth system.

In May, he signed a new deal at the club until June 2016 which saw his salary increase to €2.5m a season.
