Giorgio Chiellini Is Set To Be Re Signed By Juventus On A One Year Contract

Juventus are apparently set to re-sign Giorgio Chiellini, who became a free agent earlier this month after his contract with the Old Lady expired.
Chiellini, 36, has been a Juventus mainstay for the past 17 years, but his future appeared to be in doubt after his contract ended at the end of June.
According to Calcio Mercato, however, the Old Lady will offer Chiellini a fresh one-year contract to extend his tenure with the Italian giants.
Giorgio Chiellini is set to sign a new one-year contract with Juventus, according to reports. The 36-year-old is a free agent after his contract with the Italian giants expired last month. The defender will reportedly take a pay cut to stay at the club, but an agreement is expected to be struck soon.
Despite his advanced age, Chiellini showed that he is still at the peak of his game during the European Championships.
The 36-year-old, along with Azzurri and Juventus teammate Leonardo Bonucci, kept Romelu Lukaku quiet in the quarter-finals in Munich before keeping an eye on Harry Kane in the Wembley showdown on July 11th.
Chiellini proved he is still at the top of his game by leading Italy to Euro 2020 glory. The Italian veteran is expected to accept a wage cut to ensure his future at Juventus. Chiellini’s intervention to hold back Bukayo Saka when the England teenager got the better of him was emblematic of the veteran’s streetwise mentality, in a moment that has since gone viral.
Chiellini’s defensive strength enabled Italy to force a penalty shootout, where he converted to win the European Championship on a memorable night at Wembley for Roberto Mancini’s team.
Next month, the defender will turn 37, and he has an impressive prize haul to show for his storied career.
At Turin, he won nine Serie A crowns and five Coppa Italias while also making 112 appearances for the Azzurri and scoring eight goals.
