    Marchisio's wife wrote the following on her social media, after he was benched yet again - “Tolerance reaches the line of reciprocal respect, but once it is past that, it is transformed.”

    He has barely featured this season, but even with Blaise Matuidi injured and Sami Khedira not 100 per cent fit, he was still left on the bench in the last game, which suggests things aren't going well between him and Allegri, and he isn't seen as an integral part of the team anymore. He did mention he'd like to move abroad if he were to leave Juve. I know we've all been burned by BFS' failed move but would this be worth a cheeky punt? Il principe is an excellent box to box mid, the very thing we've been crying out for, and his age would mean he'd give us a couple of years, giving time to McTominay to further develop.

    Marchisio and Vidal on the market. Just bring Pirlo out of retirement and your midfield issues are sorted!

    He's 32, we should be looking at someone else.

    What would be his most viable options if he was to leave? Milan, Inter or Napoli wouldn't be a bad move for him.

    I remember reading he won't move to any club in Serie A. So maybe PL but not sure which club will sign him. If Conte is Chelsea manager, then might be Chelsea.

    Ah I see, thanks guys. Yeah Chelsea would sense if they played a 3 in midfield to go with Kante and Bakayoko.

    Arsenal might try and sign him if they lose Wilshere to add some experience. There's also Liverpool if they lose Can.

    He's in decline and he is 32 years old. Currently not what we need, we need to invest in Fabinho (24) and Milinković-Savić (22) this summer.
