Marchisio rules out Juventus exit in January

The midfielder has dismissed suggestions that he will be on his way out of Turin in the near future and says the Bianconeri are keen to win the Europa League
Claudio Marchisio says he has no intention of leaving Juventus in the January transfer window and that he wants to stay at the club for as long as possible.

The 27-year-old was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer and has been in and out of the side this season, with Paul Pogba emerging as the preferred option alongside Arturo Vidal in the centre of midfield.

However, Italy international Marchisio has stated that he does not want to cut his Bianconeri contract short for any team over the next two seasons.

"No one has ever personally come knocking at my door to take me away from Turin," he told JTV. "But every year, and especially in the summer, there are rumours concerning me.

"But, in addition to this season, I have two more years on my contract with Juventus. I hope to play for as long as possible at this club, it is not my intention to change clubs."

Antonio Conte's men suffered a shock group-stage exit from the Champions League earlier this month but, with the Europa League final to be played at Juventus Stadium, Marchisio is hoping the team can still lift a continental trophy this season.

"We were really disappointed to go out of the Champions League, but unfortunately that was the way it went," he added. "Now we know that we have to at least have a go at winning the Europa League, even if we know that will not be easy.

"We want to have the possibility of winning the trophy in our stadium, but we saw in the group stages of the two European competitions that there are some very important teams."

Juventus face Atalanta away on Sunday in their final game of 2013.
