Giorgio Chiellini is set to extend his Juventus contract by two years, keeping him at the club until 2020.

The Bianconeri are believed to be working on a number of new deals for existing players, having recently renewed Stephan Lichtsteiner’s contract until 2018. Paulo Dybala is believed to be next on the list, while it’s been reported that Max Allegri is being offered a new contract in an effort to ward off the interests of Arsenal and Barcelona. Alex Sandro is also gaining attention and Juve could renew his deal by another year or two, according to reports in this morning’s Corriere dello Sport.

Another addition to the list is veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini, entering the penultimate season of his existing Juve contract. Gazzetta dello Sport report that Juve are offering Chiellini a further two-years to his deal, taking up to 2020 when he’ll be 35-years-old and presumely ready to hang up his boots, hopefully at Juve.

Given the players injury woes over the last few seasons, Allegri has opted to use Chiellini sparsely this year, perhaps in an effort to get the very best of the old warhorse, who has responded well. His performances in the big games this season have been solid and keeping him around the club would be of great benefit to young Daniele Rugani, as well as the inbound Mattia Caldara who will arrive in Turin in 2018/19.

When you consider that good quality centre-backs seem to come at a premium in this modern-era of the game, renewing Chiellini’s deal seems a straight forward decision, especially as he’s been a loyal servant while forming the backbone of the Juve renaissance over the last 5-years.
