Juventus transfers: Chiellini receives offer from MLS

by | May 11, 2022 12:25

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini has reportedly been offered a contract by MLS side LAFC.

The Italy international sees his Juventus contract expire in 2023 but is ready to leave the club at the end of the season following Italy’s failed attempt to qualify for Qatar 2022.

The experienced defender must decide whether to retire or continue his career for one more season abroad. According to The Athletic, he has received an offer to play in the MLS in 2022-23.

According to the report ‘LAFC did not offer Chiellini a designated player contract, meaning they would not be able to pay the veteran Italian more than $1.65 million (£1.31 million) for the 2023 campaign.’

Vancouver Whitecaps are also considering a move for the Azzurri captain, who will play his final game with the national team in June against Argentina.

Chiellini hasn’t yet confirmed that he will leave Juventus in the summer but suggested so during a press conference attended by Football Italia yesterday.

The Bianconeri captain revealed that he could have retired after Italy’s triumph at Euro 2020 last summer or even if VAR hadn’t disallowed Marko Arnautovic’s goal against the Azzurri in the Round of 16.
