    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.

    He said he'd prefer to move abroad if he leaves Juve.

    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.

    Free agent now. In his peak at United? Awesome. But probably too far past his best now. Only 32 though, surely able to contribute somewhere. His experience and winning mentality would be valuable. Saw Spurs and Everton linked. Can't see Spurs needing him. Could maybe do a job at Everton but I think the League would be too much for him. If he fancied England the Championship could be an option (wages may be the problem!), but I think it would be too physical. Also saw Monaco linked - France would be a good option for him.

    Your post reads like a Trump speech lol

    Yeah I don’t think he’d be suited to the PL

    Looks like Dembele is leaving and he can fill in the gap? Not as a starter, but as an experienced squad player

    It's the "awesome" I threw in isn't it? I knew it was a mistake :lol:

    Yeah I can see him as a squad player for a Prem team, but I just don't know how well he has recovered from his knee injury. Played 20 games for Juve last season though.

    He’s technically good enough for Juventus and most top teams, but the problem is his fitness ans stamina after two years of injuries.

    His quickness on the ball and style of play in general fits the EPL perfectly.

    Yeah I think he would be very suited in style, just his fitness that's the problem unfortunately.

    We don't need another midfielder.

    He was a great midfielder at his best. Had a bit of everything, real smooth.

    True, with world class talent like Fellaini, we can dominate Madrid, Modric or no Modric.

    His prime was in 2011-2012

    Since 2014 he's injury prone and not THAT good.

    He should go to the MLS

    His best season for Juve was 2016-2017, when he was brilliant. You have no idea what you’re talking about.
