Romano reports the international star, who is reportedly flying to L.A. shortly, will be able to complete the whole deal. On Tuesday, the man spoke anonymously because a contract has yet to be signed between LAFC and veteran Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini‘s Juventus Italian club. Heading to the U.S. is not much of a surprise, seeing as how the news that Giorgio Chiellini was leaving Juventus has been gathering momentum since his departure, then, of course, made famous and official, but that Chiellini would spend the final year or two of his playing career in L.A. – a place very, very different than Turin – may surprise some.
Giorgio Chiellini has left Juventus, and now Chiellini is a move away from joining Los Angeles FC, an MLS team, in a free-agent deal. Los Angeles FC is reportedly one of the two MLS sides targeting Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini, who is preparing to depart the Serie A giants at the end of this season. Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini has announced he is leaving Juventus at the end of the current season, after a career of 17 years. Chiellini has received two offers from MLS, including a bid.
Former Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini will likely only play a handful of seasons in the U.S. because of his advancing years. Still, the setup is an excellent one for MLS. Juventus veteran Giorgio Chiellini is nearing retirement and is looking for an adventure somewhere else before hanging up the boots, and the MLS is ready to give him that experience. Giorgio Chiellini, who is out of Euro 2020 considerations because of lingering injuries which have increased over recent years, is leaving Juventus this summer — one year before the end of his contract, set for June 2023.
Paulo Dybala is sure to leave Juventus, who decided not to renew his expired contract. Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is due to leave the Chelsea contract at the end of this season and was being heavily linked with joining Juventus, but the Champions of Europe Real Madrid lured him away. Despite beating several suitors to the signing of Matthijs de Ligt, the Dutch defender has not been able to establish himself as a leading figure at the back in Allianz Stadium so far.
Italy defeated England on penalties in the final, with the emerging international star being awarded Best defender in the competition for his toughness in defence. Chiellini became a regular member of the starting lineup for Fiorentina 2004 until Juventus called him up for the 2005-06 campaign. Juventus were also willing to pay Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale more than Wayne Rooney earned during his time with the club, making him their highest-paid player.
