Andrea Barzagli is hoping to see out the remainder of his career at Juventus and is expected to sign a new two-year deal.

The defender joined I Bianconeri in 2011 and has become a cornerstone of their formidable defence.

His current contract ends in June but Barzagli isn’t ready to call it a day just yet.

“I’d like to see out my career at Juventus. We will calmly discuss it with the club,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Juve are expected to offer the defender a new two-year deal which will be finalised in the coming week.

Turning his attention to the game against Chievo, the veteran defender explained Juve’s recent turnaround

“We have rediscovered our solidity and confidence,” added Barzagli.

“Compared to the start of the season we have changed the mentality of the team. There is more sacrifice from everyone, we’re back to pushing hard the way we did in previous years.

“Now we mustn’t think of the run of victories, as instead focus on one game at a time.

“The [Champions League] draw was not kind to us, but Bayern can say the same thing. We are facing a powerhouse of European football, they picked the toughest opponent in the pot.”
