Marchisio signs new Juventus contract

Claudio Marchisio has reaffirmed his loyalty to Juventus by extending his contract at the club by five years.
The Turin native has grown up in the Juve youth ranks since first joining the club 18 years ago and is a first-team regular and Italy international. His new contract will expire in 2016.
He told the club’s official website: “It is an extremely important day for me and I would like to dedicate it to my family, who have always supported me. I began my association with Juventus in 1993 and I am happy that I have been able to extend my stay.”
There were some doubts about the renewal after reported interest from Inter, but Marchisio insists he was only ever thinking about Juventus.
“My contract situation has been spoken about a lot in previous months, but from the club’s or my point of view there has never been a moment which has put our relationship in jeopardy.”
A fan favourite, Marchisio wants to help the Old Lady return to its past glories, especially for the fans, who have been through some tough years along with the team.
“I am happy that the club’s shown their trust in me and now I want to reciprocate it by winning. My biggest dream is to lift a trophy as soon as possible.
“It is a dream that I also want to achieve for our fans who have always been with us even during the most difficult moments, and they deserve to be repaid.”

Sporting director Giuseppe Marotta was thrilled with the renewal, and also explained various details of the deal:
“We’re experiencing a momentous change in terms of the relationship with players and this contract has seen new conditions included, such as image rights and achieving certain targets, which cause the negotiations to last longer.
“We are happy for this renewal, because Marchisio is an important player, who came through the youth ranks and is Bianconero through and through.
“His sense of affiliation and professionalism are basic elements which excite the fans and help to chase the targets that we’ve established.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
