Juventus Preparing to Bring Chiellini Back to the Club

Giorgio Chiellini is ready to return to Juventus after spending two years at Los Angeles FC, the first as a player and the other as a development coach. The Bianconeri will undergo substantial changes in their management in the coming weeks. The legend should be part of the additions, La Gazzetta dello Sport informed.

Cristiano Giuntoli will appoint his former right-hand man Giuseppe Pompilio and Cesena’s director Stefano Stefanelli. The role of the former defender will be finalized later on. It’ll be closer to the front office than the squad and the coaching staff. His brother Claudio is currently managing the Next Gen team.

Chiellini will head back to Italy in July to allow his daughters to complete the school year in Los Angeles and will likely join Juventus shortly after that. He has collected 561 appearances. He’s already technically under contract with the Old Lady as an ambassador till 2026.

He played along with Thiago Motta for Italy, and the two have a nice rapport.

Juventus have often floated the idea of bringing in a club legend, such as Alessandro Del Piero and Gianluigi Buffon, but Chiellini has significantly better chances and has been preparing for it for a while. The Bianconeri will also hire some new scouts to replenish the department. The new head one should be Matteo Serra from PSG, Tuttomercatoweb relayed. Napoli’s Leonardo Mantovani and Maurizio Micheli and Genoa’s Matteo Scala are also on their radar.
