Official: Marchisio leaves Zenit

Former Juventus and Italy midfielder Claudio Marchisio has officially left Zenit St Petersburg by mutual consent.

Zenit tweeted on Monday evening: “The club can confirm that Claudio Marchisio's contract has been mutually terminated.

“Zenit would like to thank Claudio for his time with the club and wish him all the best for the future.”

The 33-year-old was released by Juve in August 2018 and signed a contract with Zenit until 2020 a month later.

However, continued knee problems limited him to just 15 games for the Russian club, although he did manage to score twice.

The ex-Italy international is best known for his association with the Old Lady, playing 389 times, winning seven Scudetti and reaching two Champions League Finals.

As for a possible Juve reunion with Gianluigi Buffon, there has so far been no suggestion as to where Marchisio will head next.
