The veteran defender certainly showed his class at the latest Euros, something that could have been part of the reason he was offered a new deal by Juve.  

"Giorgio Chiellini embodies everything that Juventus stands for, and it is through his commitment and excellent displays over the course of last 16 years that has earned him a contract renewal," a statement on Juventus' official website read. 

Meanwhile, Brazilian midfielder Fabinho also put pen to paper this week as he signed a five-year contract extension with Liverpool, and the player was delighted with his new deal.
