In a different universe, agent sbobet one where Andrea Pirlo opened up an elegant espadrille shop rather than pulled on a pair of football boots, Claudio Marchisio might be the king of all midfielders.A man with imperious technical ability, sharp vision and an unsung determination, the 32-year-old has missed out on the chance to be the off-the-field icon that his former club and international teammate has enjoyed so serenely.In a world where Xabi Alonso models for Porsche and the aforementioned Pirlo sniffs his own Merlot for the TV cameras, perhaps Marchisio's hair is too ruffled, beard too straggly, and forehead too sweaty to be associated with these objectively beautiful men.Still at Juventus, where he has recently dropped out of first-team regularity, the midfielder is strongly linked with a move to the MLS in the summer and it is one that will only strengthen his ties to the recently retired New York City FC man.The pair were among the first names on the teamsheet in the Old Lady's return to football's top table. Still recovering from the Calciopoli scandal that forcibly relegated the club to Serie B, their brief stay in which afforded Marchisio his breakthrough, Juve finally announced themselves with a midfield that also featured Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba in the 2014/15 Champions League final, which Barcelona won 3-1.While those two won big money moves to fellow European giants, and the elder statesman Pirlo headed to North America, Marchisio still remains and can count the upcoming quarter-final tie with Real Madrid as a potential swansong.With almost 400 Juve appearances to his name, he is a true one club man that marshalls his colleagues, battles with a large dose of grace, and steps up in big games such as that Berlin final defeat, where he played a key role in his side's only goal, and in the 2014 World Cup, agent sbobet where he slammed home the Azzurri's first strike of the tournament against England.Miralem Pjanic's suspension for the first leg in Turin could admit the veteran a return to the heart of the action in what could be his last ever Champions League outing, should his experience win out over Uruguayan upstart Rodrigo Bentancur.A fitting performance may finally award Marchisio the standout praise he has deserved for all his years' service, agent sbobet however should Juventus fall to Los Blancos, he will only step further into Pirlo's shadow.
