Balotelli has been widely linked with a move away from current club Manchester City, with numerous reports suggesting that Citizens' manager Roberto Mancini had lost all patience with the volatile 22-year-old's indiscipline.
A return back to an Italian club has been mooted for Balotelli, who is reportedly seeking to make a return to his native country, and the Bianconeri have been touted as a possible destination for the former Inter Milan player.
However, Balotelli's international team-mate Marchisio has advised his club against such a move, claiming that the striker would not be able to fit in with the professional image of the club.
"I would have a question mark over Mario's move here," Marchisio told Il Messaggero.
"Here, we have rules.
"He has tremendous talent, but I'm not sure whether he will be able to change here."
Marchisio also spoke of his friendship with Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi, a player who had also been linked with a move away from his current club.
"De Rossi and I have so much in common," Marchisio added.
We came through the youth ranks at the team we supported. He is a true friend that has been built through the national team.
"Daniele should be the focus of the project at Roma. He is the image of the club, along with Totti."
The 26-year-old midfielder also expressed his intention of leading Juventus to glory this season, and downplayed comparisons between his side and Spanish giants Barcelona.
"I want 2013 to be at least equal to 2012," Marchisio declared.
"We have to raise at least one trophy.
"Comparisons with Barca are nice, but they are exaggerated. The numbers speak for themselves.
"We are on the start of a path, trying to win playing spectacular but also purposeful football."
Juventus are currently taking their traditional winter break but will return to action on 6 January next year against Sampdoria.
