Man Utd target Juventus Marchisio

Man Utd target Juventus Marchisio

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to land Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio in a bid to expand his midfield options.

Newly crowned Premier League champions are planning for next season, with midfield area identified as the weakest link in United’s side. Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to offer around £20 million for the 27-year-old Italy international and offer Nani as a makeweight in a part-exchange deal.

While Serie A champions have enough depth in midfield with Pirlo, Vidal and Pogba capable to make a decisive impact, the Old Lady’s manager Antonio Conte could be reluctant to part ways with his valuable asset. However the prospect of landing Nani could convince him to cash in on Marchisio. The Turin side failed to land the Portuguese winger last year and is thought to be keen on landing the player.

Nani has a year left on his current deal, and, with the Portuguese demanding to increasing his wage, it is unlikely that he agrees a new contract with Man Utd.
