Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has revealed that he hopes to renew with the club in the future and wants to continue playing with them for a long time.

The 27-year-old has been with the Bianconeri since 2006, but has constantly been linked with a move away from the club in recent months, though he insists that he only has plans of succeeding with the reigning Serie A champions.

Marchisio spoke to Sky Sport Italia after Juve’s 4-1 win over Atalanta on Sunday about the match and his role at the club, while also commenting on the progress of new team-mates Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez.

“We’re doing fine and we’ve demonstrated our talent once again,” said the Italian international.

“It will be a peaceful Christmas and a positive ending to 2013 It’s a pity that we were eliminated from the Champions League, but now we think of the break and next we will work for the big match against .

“My position on the field? As long as we win, I’m fine in any role. However, I’m not [Andrea] Pirlo and it’s difficult to interpret the position usually occupied by the former AC Milan man.

“Today we had a good performance. It’s never easy to win in Bergamo.

“The absence of goals? I miss the net more now. The last two years I’ve been used to scoring more goals, but it’s mainly important that the squad continues to win.

“We have five points more than Roma at the moment and when we get back to playing we’ll try to widen the gap between us and the Giallorossi.

“Tevez and Llorente? They’re doing very well. Their arrival at Juventus has given us more offensive solutions.

“My name on the transfer market? I hope to renew my contract when it expires in two years. I want to continue playing in this shirt for a long time.

“New roles in the team? Their is great availability, not only from me, but from the whole group. The team is available to the coach and it’s this factor that’s allowed us to win during the past few years.”
