Manchester United have made a £20m offer for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio, who has also been linked with Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Reports in Italy suggest that the Red Devils have approached the Turin giants about the availability of Marchisio and are willing to part with £20m to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford.

United are keen to add an extra midfielder in January in a bid to halt their faltering form and the experienced Italian international fits the bill.

Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League in December and reports suggested that Marchisio might be sacrificed to help offset the resulting financial shortfall, estimated at £17m.

Marchisio is reportedly somewhat surplus to requirements at Juve with Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal considered the midfield of the future by the Italian club.

However, despite concerns about how a lack of playing time might affect his World Cup chances, Marchisio is on record as saying he wants to stay at Juve where he has spent the entirety of his career after coming through the youth ranks.
