Manchester United are set to make an offer of £26million for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio according to Corriere Dello Sport.
The Premier League Champions are to make a final push to land Cesc Fabregas this week with a final £35million bid, but if FC Barcelona turn the club down once again they will look to bring in Claudio Marchisio or Marouane Fellaini.
Back in June, Marchisio said that he would be proud if reports were correct on Manchester United planning an offer for him.
“I will have to talk to Juventus. I want to see if I’m still important for them
“If not, then it is only normal for me to look at other teams. It has been said that my intentions are decisive, but it takes two to tango.
“Eventual offers from Manchester United or Monaco make me proud, but nobody has called me.
“Now I am focusing on the Confederations Cup and after that I’ll understand what’s real and what isn’t.”
