The 36-year-old’s previous contract expired earlier this summer, but he will stay in Turin for another two years
Giorgio Chiellini has signed a two-year contract with Juventus.
The center-back became a free agent this summer when his contract with the Serie A giants expired.
However, the Turin club have confirmed that the Italian international will still be part of the team for the next season and signed a deal until 2023.
What was said
“Ultimately, the signing was a formality because once I knew my body would allow me to continue playing, there was always a willingness on both sides to move on together,” Chiellini told the club’s media channel.
“It was just the timing of various situations that delayed this commitment.
“The very close relationship between me and Juventus goes beyond anything else. I had absolutely no doubt that I would stay here. “
How long has Chiellini been with Juventus?
The captain of the Bianconeri came to the club from Fiorentina in 2005.
He has played 535 competitive games for the club, winning nine Serie A titles and five Coppa Italia titles.
But Chiellini played a limited role for the team last season as injuries reduced him to just 17 Serie A games.
However, it recovered in time to take a permanent place in Italy’s Euro 2020 campaign.
He was playing in five games in competition when the Azzurri won the trophy.
