Juventus Midfielder Claudio Marchisio: I Could Never Wear An Inter Jersey

Marchisio admits he can't picture himself in an Inter shirt...
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has compared himself to former club hero Pavel Nedved, claiming that he could not see himself playing for rivals Inter either.

The 24-year-old is in the midst of contract negotiations with the Turin giants and the Nerazzurri have reportedly swooped in and offered him a better deal.

"Inter? I am like Nedved, I don't see myself with the Nerazzurri, with that shirt," Marchisio told Il Giorno.

"I know that there was some contact. I was pleased that a team that had won everything had asked about me. But now I am thinking only of Juve and I hope to renew [my contract] soon, I want to stay in Turin for life."

The former Empoli player is confident that the Bianconeri can pick up some silverware this season, despite being eliminated from the Europa League in the group stage.

"We want to win something at the end of the season, there is the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia and we'll do everything to reach these goals," he added.

Juventus are back in action on January 6 against Parma.
