Juventus Set to Announce Two Extensions Soon, Working on Two More

Giorgio Chiellini is currently a free agent as his contract with Juventus expired, but he will stay put. The defender voiced doubts in the past, but the return of Massimiliano Allegri convinced him. Furthermore, three players whose deals are up in 2022 are likely to get extensions: Juan Cuadrado, Federico Bernardeschi, and Paulo Dybala.

Chiellini will re-up for one more season after the Euro despite his agent’s coyness about it, Tuttosport reports. He will continue his 16-year run with the Bianconeri, where he contributed to nine titles and accumulated 535 appearances. He is now the longest-tenured player since Gianluigi Buffon left again.

Juventus have reached an agreement with Cuadrado and will make it official after Copa America. The Colombian international was one of the best performers in 2020/2021. The end date of his contract will be pushed to 2023, Tuttosport indicates. Moreover, Allegri plans to use more offensively after a campaign where he served as a pure fullback.

Instead, the Bianconeri will have to negotiate some more with Bernardeschi and Dybala, but the signs are positive. The former has no intention to leave and is eager to bounce back under the returning gaffer, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs. His representative Mino Raiolo will soon visit with the management.

Dybala is leaning towards accepting the three-year, €30M in total extension offered by the club. The talks will heat up when he will be back in Turin, alongside his agent, for the pre-season camp. His new contract is the top priority for Juventus, the Turin-based newspaper informed.
