Chiellini has signed a new two-year contract extension with Juventus, keeping him at the club until 2023. The deal will see the player enter into his 17th season with Juve and he will be 38 when this extension concludes.
Chiellini joined the Italian giants in 2005 when he joined from Fiorentina. To date, he has scored 36 times in 535 appearances along with 24 assists in all competitions.
His last deal came to a conclusion at the end of June and he was basically a free agent, but both player and club were keen to extend the relationship. He has since returned from holiday following Italy’s successful Euro 2020, where he was a key player in his country’s victory at Wembley Stadium, beating England in the final in a penalty shoot-out.
He is expected to be part of the Italy team at the 2022 World Cup which will take place in Qatar.
Giorgio Chiellini Wants More Trophies
At a ceremony in Livorno, Chiellini talked of wanting to win more trophies: “I want to lift some more trophies because it just makes you hungrier to do it again – and wearing the Juventus jersey without the Scudetto symbol on the chest represents an extra motivation. I need a few more days to rest and recover from the chaos of the last month, but on Monday I’ll be in Turin and happy to get started again.”
During his time in Turin, Chiellini has claimed 20 trophies, including nine Serie A titles in a row as well as a runners-up medal in the Champions League.
Chiellini will return to play under new head coach Massimiliano Allegri who took over from Andrea Pirlo in the summer.
