Only Paolo Maldini, Fabio Cannavaro, international record holder Gianluigi Buffon had the Italian national jersey so often. At Juventus, Chiellini’s contract has expired, who will complete 38 at the end of this summer. It is not yet known if he will stop playing football or continue his career elsewhere. According to Italian media, an adventure is looming in the United States.
