The return of to the dugout is likely to mean a new contract for veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini.

In what has been a tumultuous few days for with various managers and directors leaving their clubs, it’s who may have come out the strongest.

During Allegri’s five titles with Juve between 2015 and 2019, he relied upon the back three of Andrea Barzagli, Bonucci, and Chiellini.

The positive relationship between the latter and Allegri means that a new contract is almost an inevitability. In the next few days, the defender is expected to sit down with Andrea Agnelli and discuss the details of an extension.

The financial details of the new deal for the 36-year-old are not yet clear.
