Chiellini close to Juventus renewal

Reports suggest Giorgio Chiellini is on the verge of signing a two-year extension to his Juventus contract.

The defender’s current deal expires in the summer, and so far he hasn’t put pen to paper on a new deal.

He had been linked with a reunion with Antonio Conte at Chelsea, but the Blues boss said this week “I think he wants to finish his career at Juventus”.

Now Corriere della Sera is reporting that a deal has been agreed on a two-year extension to take Chiellini up to 2020, when he’ll be 36.

There are still some final details to be ironed out, but the Italian international is all set to extend his stay in Turin.
