Barzagli next up for Juventus

Andrea Barzagli is set to become the latest Juventus player to be handed a new contract by the club.

Fabio Quagliarella signed until 2015 on Monday, joining the likes of Paolo De Ceglie, Leonardo Bonucci and Alessandro Matri in committing themselves to the Old Lady.

Centre-back Barzagli will reportedly be the next Bianconeri to put pen to paper on a new agreement in Turin.

The 2006 World Cup winner is only contracted to the Old Lady until June 2013. He will extend until 2014 or 2015.

The former Palermo stopper joined Juve in January 2011 for a nominal fee of €600,000 from German club Wolfsburg.

Barzagli, 30, made 15 League appearances last term and he’s currently on 32 games in Serie A this term.

Goalkeeper Gigi Buffon, contracted until 2013, is also being tipped to extend his stay at the club.
