Giorgio Chiellini’s agent has admitted that Manchester United and Manchester City are among the clubs interested in the defender, although he still hopes to remain at Juventus.
Reports have suggested that the Italy international could leave Turin this summer, with Juventus facing a struggle to secure Champions League qualification.
The 25-year-old’s representative Davide Lippi claims both Manchester clubs have been monitoring the situation, but Chiellini is focused on finishing fourth with Juve in Serie A.
“The primary objective of Giorgio is fourth place in the standings to get into the Champions League,” Lippi told calciomercato.it.
“But we also give a little thought to the renewal of his contract. We met once with the club and I hope there will be another appointment soon.
“The intention is to remain at a great and glorious club like Juventus. We hope to find an agreement before the World Cup.
“Manchester City and United? Not only English but also some Spanish clubs would like to have Giorgio.
“In any case, his will is clear. He will stay quiet and continue to fight for the objectives of Juventus.”
