Today, at 17, Andrea Agnelli and Claudio Marchisio will meet the media at the Juventus Stadium.
No secret: the “young Prince” is renewing until 2019, and in fact married for life in the club of his heart. So far, so obvious, news in the air for some time, found agreement after the final in Berlin and details filed in these hours without a hitch. But particularly significant is the presence of the Juventus president. In fact, Marchisio is equated with Buffon and Chiellini, they also accompanied by Agnelli in the day of their last renewal. These Juventus pillars, the men on which the company clearly intends to invest in long maturities, also at management level in the future that the Juventus people hopes is still far.
The Contract. Marchisio signing a five-year of 3.6 million per season plus bonuses. At the end of the contract will have 33 years and a half. A story almost entirely with Juventus that of the boy from Turin, in the youth teams already when he was 7 years old and away from Vinovo only in 2007-2008 (on loan at Empoli): 308 appearances and 35 goals. His wall began to fill right in the era of Andrea Agnelli: 4 league titles, two Italian Super Cups and an Italian Cup. He is the pride of the Juventus youth sector, has been part of all the Under Nation teams (he won the Toulon tournament in 2008 and was third at the European Under-21 Championship in 2009), while in the big National team has already clocked in for 52 times (4 goals scored).
COMPLETE MIDFIELDER. Will be up to him to stem the departure of Pirlo, both in the club and in National team. In the last three to four years Marchisio and entered by force among the best midfielders , thanks to a ductility with few internationally equals. has played in every role in the middle, with high efficiency. Under the management of Conte and Allegri has even played as a second striker and winger. In the Champions League final (he was among the few Bianconeri to shine). This year will start as a director, especially with the “roar”, but do not expect a management like Pirlo, would not make sense to compare the two. Marchisio is undoubtedly more academic in being a director than the phenomenon of Brescia, at the same time he ensures greater solidity in front of the defense, and passage times are still acceptable. Allegri will transform the midfield into a dam able to sustain a bigger number of attacking players. In short, the idea is to bring the maximum of quality nearby the opposition half. Not surprisingly, Marotta and Paratici are still looking for a pure playmaker and secondly a winger capable of creating numerical superiority.
