Manchester United make offer for Juventus midfielder

Arturo Vidal Claudio Marchisio juventusCurrent English Premier league champions Manchester United have reportedly made an offer for Juventus’ midfield man Claudio Marchisio.

The Red Devils are keen to strengthen their midfield after a very disappointing start to their season, which has seen them fall 11 points behind league leaders Arsenal.

Forza Italian Football has learned that the Manchester giants made an offer of around €25 million for the 27-year-old, who has appeared on 13 occasiona in Serie A for the Bianconeri this season.

United also enquired about the availability of French starlet Paul Pogba, who signed for Juve from the English side, but that request was flatly refused.

Marchisio, a current Italian international, has found his place in the Juventus starting eleven under threat with the emergence of Pogba, thus with the impending World Cup in Brazil, he may well favour the chance of regular football elsewhere. VIP Lounge
