By Football Italian staff The former Juventus star has revealed he would like to leave the Giallorossi, where he spent two seasons, after two more years with the club.
The 31-year-old’s future has been in the spotlight recently, as his contract expired at the end of the season.
It’s a move that was seen as a huge step forward, given the fact that he was a major part of Juventus’ success in the 2012/13 season, winning the Champions League and the Coppa Italia.
However, he was then sidelined with an injury in the 2013/14 season.
He returned to the team in 2014/15, and has been an integral part of the team’s title run since, winning it in 2017.
He has won seven league titles, three Serie A titles and two Coppa Italianos, all with Fiorenina.
“I’ve never been to Italy before, but it is a big step forward for me,” he told Rai Sport.
“In the past years I have been here and it was difficult to adapt to it, but the team was strong.
It is a great place to live, I think it’s one of the best clubs in the world, and a good challenge.
I’m very happy here.”
A move away from Juventus is certainly not impossible, given that the Giareggio has already said that he wants to end his playing career with the Bianconeri, and that he’d be open to returning to Italy if he did indeed leave the club in the future.
