Juventus star Marchisio flattered by Man Utd interest
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio is aware of interest from Manchester United - and is flattered. Marchisio is interesting United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as he seeks a new midfield signing over doubts concerning the futures of Paul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves.
"It's nice because they [Manchester United] are a great team," confessed Marchisio, who is becoming frustrated over the lack of progress of new contract talks.
"But I am a Juve player and I can't think of anything better than to finish the season wearing this jersey.
"I hope to continue here for as long as possible."
