Italy and Juventus star Claudio Marchisio was subject of a failed bid from Premier League giants Liverpool in the summer, according to Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta. 

The 29-year-old midfielder received several offers in the summer according to Marotta, insisting he wants to end his career in Turin. Liverpool spent big in the summer transfer market, and were expected to buy a midfielder, but their bid for Marchisio was rejected. Juventus also sold Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich in the summer and Carlos Tevez to Boca Juniors, and were not prepared to lose another key player.

“We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying – not selling,” Marotta told Premium Sport shortly before Juventus’s 0-0 draw at Internazionale on Sunday evening.

“We have renewed with him, our focus is strong and I think Claudio’s first thought is to finish his career here. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers.”

Marchisio pledged his loyalty to Serie A champions Juventus in the summer by signing a new five-year contract. Marotta also spoke about Paul Pogba, who was a transfer target of a the elite European clubs in the summer.

“There were offers from other clubs formalised, but we have rejected them because Paul is the heritage of the club,” Marotta said.

“Maybe we have loaded him with many responsibilities, but this will help him to become a leader.”
