Juventus prepare contract renewals

Juventus are reportedly preparing new contracts for Andrea Barzagli, Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini.

The Bianconeri have already begun planning for next season, and want to be sure which players will be available to Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Both Chiellini and Barzagli are out of contract at the end of the season, but calciomercato.com reports they’ll both be given new deals.

The latter will sign a one-year extension, while 33-year-old Chiellini will be locked down until 2020.

Stephan Lichtsteiner won’t be offered a new contract, but he’s likely to stay until his deal expires in on June 30, rather than joining Marseille or Valencia.

There is doubt over the future of Kwadwo Asamoah, who could yet be offered a new deal in Turin despite interest from Galatasaray.

Juve are going to offer Alex Sandro a new contract, but his form has declined this season and there’s interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Brazilian made it clear last summer he was happy to stay, but it's possible that situation has changed.

As a result, the club wants to make sure that both of Allegri’s natural left-backs don’t leave in the same summer.

The situation is similarly unclear with Sami Khedira, who has a further year on his contract but is considering a move to MLS.

Emre Can is expected to arrive from Liverpool in the summer on a free transfer, which could push his fellow German down the pecking order.
