Buffon, Chiellini sign new Juventus contracts

Juventus legends Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon have extended their stay at the club for a further year, the club has confirmed. 

The new deals will see the veterans stay at the Turin side until at least June 2021, with the club noting it was a reward for their loyalty and long-term service. 

“There are players who need no introduction,” Juventus said on a statement published on their website. 

“Champions whose story speaks for itself, and whose connection with the shirt they wear is indissoluble.

“Examples on the pitch and in the locker room, leaders, driving forces, bearers of the Bianconeri DNA, who wear it as a second skin.

“Gianluigi Buffon. Giorgio Chiellini. Captains, legends. Bianconeri since the beginning. Bianconeri forever. And to confirm it, in case there is a need, today their contract renewals have become official, for another: 2021!”

Despite their legendary status at the club, the pair have been sparingly used this campaign, with Buffon featuring seven times in Serie A. 

He will be 43 by the time his new contract runs out at the club, while Chiellini will be turning 36 in August.
