Juventus management risk losing Claudio Marchisio to Manchester United.

Leggo says United are intensifying their pursuit of Marchisio, who has become fed-up with the lack of progress over new contract talks.

The midfielder's camp have been trying to get Juve to reopen negotiations for over a year - but without any luck. Marchisio's €1 million salary is half of Hasan Salihamidzic's and a quarter of Amauri's.

The 25 year-old, a first-choice for Italy, is now exploring his options and has welcomed United's interest.

And it's emerged Arsenal have also made tentative enquiries since United's interest became public.
