Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio is keen to remain with the Serie A club despite interest from Europe's top teams.

Marchisio, who was born in Turin, has spent almost his entire career at Juventus after progressing through the ranks at his hometown club.

The 27-year-old player has been linked with Premier League champion Manchester United and big-spending Monaco, and he says ''of course it makes me happy to see my name put together with big European clubs'' but adds ''my dream is to end my career at Juventus.''

Marchisio swiftly established himself as a Juventus regular and a firm fans' favorite on his return from a season-long loan spell at Empoli in 2008.

The Italy international is a key member of the Juventus team which has won two successive league titles.
