Former Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has agreed to join LAFC, according to Fabrizio Romano. This was a likely destination for Chiellini after an Italian club tried to walk him this summer. Chiellini will join the MLS with a free transfer and will definitely be added to the LAFC.

At 37, Giorgio Chiellini will be one of the best defenders in MLS. As he is old, he is likely to play only a few seasons in the United States, which is a great move for the league. After 425 appearances in Juventus, Chiellini proves his talent in the United States.

Giorgio Chiellini About the Move

MLS has welcomed many prominent international players into the league in recent years, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Carlos Vela being the biggest names. 

There are also reports that Lionel Messi joined Inter Miami in 2023. As such, Chiellini’s move is part of a major trend for players who see MLS as a viable option when things don’t look promising in Europe.

Giorgio Chiellini joined Juventus from Livorno in 2004 and won nine league titles and five Italian Cups during his stay in Turin.

“We had these 10 magnificent years, it is up to the others to continue now,” said the Italy legend. “I did everything I could, I hope that I left something.”

“It is my choice 100 percent, I am happy to leave at such a high level because for many years I have said I didn’t want to finish struggling and not being able to play at my level. I gave it my all, soon I will be the biggest Juventus fan from the outside. After so many years within this club, you cannot shake it off.”

Chiellini announced his retirement from international football last month. The final match against Italy will take place on Wednesday when the European champions will face Argentina in South America at Wembley Stadium.

LAFC is currently at the top of the MLS Western Conference after finishing 14 games under first-year head coach Steve Cherundolo.
