His initial contract with the Italian Serie A club expired this summer and it was looking like his journey with the Italian club was over but that was not to be.
The club’s board believed that the 36-year-old Italian defender still has a lot to offer the club. Hence, he got a two-year contract extension which will see him stay at the club until June 30, 2023.
Giorgio Chiellini has been playing for Juventus since July 1, 2005, after he left Fiorentina for a transfer fee worth €7.70 million. Since then, he has been able to establish himself so much that he is regarded as one of the most respected legends of the club.
Between 2005 and 2021, Giorgio Chiellini has played 535 times for Juventus in which he scored 36 goals and provided 24 assists.
In 16 years at Juventus, Giorgio Chiellini has helped the Italian club to win 9 Serie A titles, five Coppa Italia, and five Supercoppa Italiana.
The 36-year-old defender proved that he still has all it takes to play at the highest level when he led Italy to win the just concluded Euro 2020. After the triumph, it was certain that Juventus would retain him beyond this summer.
“In the end, the signing was a formality because as soon as I knew that my body would allow me to continue playing, there was always the will of both parties to continue together,” Chiellini told the club’s media channel.
“It was just the timing of various situations that delayed this signing.
“The very close relationship between myself and Juventus goes beyond everything else. I had absolutely no doubts that I would remain here.”
