Being far from starting XI, Marchisio chooses to stay
- Claudio Marchisio won't leave Juventus despite being the last choice in the midfield for Massimiliano Allegri
Juve veteran Claudio Marchisio is staying at Turin despite falling down the pecking order. According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, he won't leave the club, where he has been playing since the days of the Primavera, having spent only one loan spell at Empoli back in the season 2007-2008, even knowing that the manager prefers to use Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira, Blaise Matuidi or Rodrigo Bentancur in the midfield ahead of him.
It was the last season story, and now the chances of the 32-year-old to enjoy some first-team football have decreased even more as the Old Lady have signed Emre Can from Liverpool.
The 32-year-old has been a vital player for Antonio Conte, having made 52 appearances in the 2014-2015 season.
However, since Max Allegri's arrival, Il Principino has suffered several injuries and lost his importance for the newly-shaped Allegri's squad.
Marchisio has spent his whole youth & senior career at Juve, apart from his one-season loan spell at Empoli. Il Principino has made around 300 caps for the Old Lady, scoring 33 goals.
During the annual pre-season friendly with Juventus B at Villar Perosa earlier today, Marchisio has led the way as Juve captain.
