Juventus have announced Leonardo Bonucci’s new contract until 2024, with Juan Cuadrado and Wojciech Szczesny to follow shortly.
In a whirlwind renewal, Juve confirmed on their official website this afternoon that Bonucci had extended his deal by a further season.
The defender returned to the Bianconeri from Milan in the summer of 2018 and has slotted straight back into their backline, winning another Scudetto.
He has also been promoted to captain while Giorgio Chiellini recovers from an ACL injury.
The new deal will take the 32-year-old through until he is 37, while Gazzetta dello Sport claims he will now earn a salary of €6m plus bonuses - a minor increase on the previous €5.5m.
Sky Sport Italia expects Szczesny and Cuadrado to similarly sign on soon, with Goal.com’s Romeo Agresti adding Blaise Matuidi is next in line to receive an extension.
