The 36-year-old’s previous contract expired earlier this summer, but he will remain 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.
But the Turin club have confirmed that the Italian international will continue to be part of the team next season and have signed an agreement that runs until 2023.
What was said?
“Ultimately, the signing was a formality, because once I knew my body would allow me to keep playing, there was always the will of both parties to go along,” Chiellini told the club’s media channel.
‘It was just the timing of different situations that delayed this signing.
“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 at Juventus?
The Bianconeri captain joined the Fiorentina club in 2005.
He made 535 competitive appearances for the club, winning nine Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia five times along the way.
But Chiellini played a limited role for the team last season as injuries reduced him to just 17 Serie A games.
However, he recovered in time to take on an integral role in Italy’s Euro 2020 campaign.
He played in five games in the competition while the Azzurri won the trophy.
