Giorgio Chiellini rejects idea of Man United move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United and Liverpool target Giorgio Chiellini has put paid to talk that he could be primed to make a move to the Premier League this summer, by stating his intent to see out his career with Juventus.

TalkSPORT reports that the Italian centre-half, who has been named in connection with possible transfers to both Old Trafford and Anfield, told reporters that his wish was to remain with the current Serie A champions, whom he has played for since 2005.

“Ending my career at Juve? I hope so, I will be 30 in August, I can't tell what will happen in the next years but there is the will from both parties to continue together," he said.

It’s plain to see why United and Liverpool would be interested in taking Chiellini on, as he’s a vastly experienced player who could would likely be at home in any defence in the world. David Moyes in particular will have been dealt a blow by this latest revelation concerning the Italy international’s future, as he is keen to find a replacement for the outgoing Nemanja Vidic.

Chiellini however, as evidenced by his quotes, has no intentions of jumping ship in Turin anytime soon, and with Juve set to win their third title in a row, there’s hardly any incentive forcing him out the door.
