Centre-back Andrea Barzagli is on the verge of signing a new contract with Italian giants Juventus.
The Italian international is only contracted to the club until June 2013 and a new deal seems to be on the horizon.
Barzagli, signed for less than €500,000 from Wolfsburg last January, has played in every minute of all Juventus’ games so far this season.
The two parties are understood to have held initial talks regarding an extension until June 2014 for the 30-year-old. The deal may include an option for a further season.
It is being claimed that a new round of talks will soon take place before the signatures are added to the paperwork.
Barzagli’s form at Juventus has caught the eye of Italy boss Cesare Prandelli and the World Cup winner is now a contender to make Euro 2012.
