Just Juventus for Barzagli

Italian international Andrea Barzagli has underlined that he would like current club Juventus to be his last.

The centre-back joined the Old Lady in January 2011 from Wolfsburg and ended up winning the championship this term.

“I would like to stay at Juventus for life,” he told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “I came back to Italy from Germany and I think I have settled well.

“We won a splendid Scudetto. I am now 31-years-old and I have no desire to move away from Turin now.”

Juventus and Barzagli surprised many onlookers this term and he hopes 2012-13 will be just as successful.

“The new campaign is already looking good for Juventus,” the former Palermo man continued. “Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah are two great signings from Udinese.”

The Bianconeri are also close to signing Sebastian Giovinco back from Parma, while they are on the verge of doing a deal for Pescara’s Marco Verratti – although he won’t arrive until the summer of 2013.

Barzagli is contracted to Juve until June 2015.
