Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio would welcome the arrival of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli. Balotelli is being linked with a return to Italy in January after he was dropped for City's win over Tottenham on Sunday.

"Balotelli will join us? You must ask the directors. I love Mario, he is a great champion, but he is already with a great team and should do everything possible to stay there and become established at City.

"However, we will see ...," said Marchisio.
