Marchisio: Staying in Turin?
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has denied he wants a move away from the Turin giants.
The 24-year-old has yet to agree a new deal with The Old Lady admitting that he is no hurry to sign a contract extension.
Marchisio has been at the club since his youth although his future looked bleak when he was sent out on a season-long loan at Empoli three seasons ago.
However, he soon was recalled by then manager Claudio Ranieri - making an immediate breakthrough to the first XI.
Recently appointed coach Luigi Del Neri is hoping Marchisio will commit to the Bianconeri, but the Italy international claimed 'he was worried about his future' on social networking site Facebook.
Marchisio has since apologised for those comments and claims he is not interested in moving clubs.
Marchisio told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I am not fed up with Juve. I am not looking for another experience. And I'm angry because things have come out that aren't true.
"I might have made a mistake in writing that phrase, but Facebook is only an instrument to stay in touch with the fans.
"I repeat: I want to go and meet the club and stay here because I am bound to Juventus. And I know that Juve are bound to me."
