Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli have agreed new contracts to extend their stays with Serie A champions Juventus, the club has confirmed.

Chiellini, named Juve's new captain following the departure of veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, has signed a two-year deal that runs until 2020.

Defensive partner Barzagli, meanwhile, has signed on for another season that will take him past his 38th birthday next May.

The duo have been core members of a Juve team that has dominated in Serie A, winning each of the past seven league titles.

And coach Massimiliano Allegri, who was previously linked with Arsenal but appears set to stay in Turin, will be able to rely on the experienced pair again for the 2018-19 campaign.
