Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti is wanted by top European clubs, Il Corriere dello Sport has revealed.
The Italy international has enjoyed another excellent season at Stadio Olimpico and his impressive displays did not go unnoticed.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Barcelona and Manchester United are among clubs showing interest in the 30-year-old.
While the Red Devils are not really expected to make a move any time soon given David De Gea’s outstanding showings, the Catalans could decide to submit an official proposal as they search for a successor to Victor Valdes.
Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito has so far refused to negotiate the sale, but he may not be able to resist a big money offer from Camp Nou.
Federico Marchetti, who joined the club in a cut-price deal from Cagliari in the summer of 2011, has clocked up 64 Serie A appearances for the Biancocelesti.
