Father cools Juventus exit talk for Marchisio

The father of Claudio Marchisio has ruled out an immediate MLS move for the Juventus midfielder.

Stefano Marchisio told juvenews.eu that there's no plans for a departure this summer.

He said: “Claudio still has another two years on his contract, as he wants to respect, because he cares for the club. Many untrue things have been said. People already thought we were in Germany, England or the United States.

“If the club says that Claudio is no longer part of the project, then we'll start worrying about it."

Some papers even suggested Marchisio's social media exchanges with Andrea Pirlo and Sebastian Giovinco pointed to Major League Soccer.

“He's been exchanging tweets with them for two years. When he read those stories on the transfer market, he burst out laughing."

However, his father and agent did make it clear that the situation could change this summer if there are no improvements.

“As with every workplace, when you are not happy, over the long run the drip, drip fills the glass and it overflows, so you start looking around.

“The glass hasn't overflowed yet. Claudio loves all his fans and is very happy at Juventus. I have faith, because I think he'll have his chances."
