Is it a case of wishful thinking, or does Claudio Marchisio know something everyone else doesn’t?

The former Juventus player got football fans talking when he took to social media to comment on Jude Bellingham’s post.

The Real Madrid star shared a photo of himself at the Golden Boy Gala in Turin, Italy, prompting Marchisio to welcome him along with a bit more of a teasing message.

Marchisio came up through Juve’s youth system before playing for over 10 years for the senior side, Transfermarkt noted.

Seen as a proud, long-standing member of the Italian side, many fans took his comment as Marchisio trying to lure the young English star to Italy.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Sami Khedira are two players who also joined the Serie A side directly from the Spanish giants and are two of many who represented both European sides.

With Juventus’ history of being at the centre of financial sagas and the club sitting second on the Serie A table, fans bashed the idea of Bellingham going there.

Here's how fans reacted to the post.

Some were totally against it:


“He isn't going to your finished club mate.”


“His future is Madrid bro.”


“Bro is not coming to Turin 😂😂😂.”


“Lol like Bellingham would want to downgrade to Juventus that has fallen off.😭😭😭”

Others could see it happening:


“Marchisio, the football veteran, commenting under Bellingham's IG post? It's like passing the torch from one midfield maestro to the rising star! 🌟⚽”


“Very likely to be fair. Cristiano Ronaldo did it.”
