Marchisio to begin contract talks

Posted on 04/09/2010


It’s reported Juventus will begin contract talks with Claudio Marchisio next week after he publicly complained at the lack of interest.

The midfielder had to pull out of international duty with Italy due to a knee injury.

Last month he caused controversy by complaining on his Facebook page that he was “pessimistic” about a renewal with Juve because he’d heard nothing from the club.

In Tuttosport today it is claimed a meeting has been set up between director general Beppe Marotta and agent Carlo Pallavicino.

Juventus released a statement a few weeks ago pointing out his contract didn’t expire until 2014, so there was no rush to engage in talks.

Tuttosport suggests the plan is to add one more year to the current deal so it’ll tie him to Juve until 2015.
