The veteran defender had been out of contract after his prior deal expired, but now Bianconeri fans will be able to enjoy watching him at Allianz Stadium for a bit longer.

Fresh off winning the Euro 2020 competition with Italy, veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini was facing some uncertainty regarding his future. Despite being a loyal servant to Juventus for nearly two decades, the Italian international found himself at a crossroads after his contract with the Bianconeri expired in June.

His agent had made it clear that no other offers had come through to pique any interest for his client, and in short, stated that Chiellini was hoping to extend his stay in Turin rather than have to continue his career elsewhere.

Well, flash-forward just under a month later, and Chiellini certainly will be breathing a sigh of relief. Contract negotiations between the soon to be 37-year-old defender and Juventus have gone according to plan, and now he's set to remain in Turin for a bit longer. Specifically, his new deal will expire at the end of the 2023 season, when he will be just shy of his 39th birthday.

Chiellini has been a Juventus player since making the switch from Fiorentina in 2005, and has gone on to make over 500 appearances for the club across all competitions. During that time, he's won nine Scudetti, and is a five-time Coppa Italia winner, among others. One trophy, however, that's eluded him so far is the Champions League, where he was part of the Juventus side who were unfortunately beaten twice by Spanish sides: Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.
