Allegri & Marchisio agree Juventus renewals

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has signed a one-year extension to his contract and is now tied to the Serie A champions until June 2017.

The 47-year-old joined Juve in the summer of 2014 to replace Antonio Conte following the latter’s decision to step down, signing a two-year deal with the Turin giants.

Allegri guided Juventus to the domestic double in his first season in charge, while also leading them to the Champions League final, and has now been rewarded with a 12-month extension to his existing deal.

The Livorno-born coach had been in charge of clubs such as Sassuolo, Cagliari and Milan before taking the reins at Juve last year.

Meanwhile, Juventus have also announced the contract renewal of Claudio Marchisio.

The Italy international’s previous contract was due to expire at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, but he has now signed a new deal with the Serie A champions until June 2020.

Marchisio is a product of the Juventus youth academy and has developed into a key figure ever since returning to his boyhood club from a one-year loan spell with Empoli in 2007-08.

The 29-year-old has made over 300 appearances in all competitions for Juve, winning four Serie A titles, two Supercoppe Italiana and one Coppa Italia.
