Claudio Marchisio has left Juventus following a 25-year association with the Serie A club.

The 32-year-old midfielder, who entered the Juve academy as a seven-year-old in 1993 and made his senior debut in 2005, has mutually rescinded his contract with the Italian champions.

Turin-born Marchisio, battling injuries, struggled to play regularly for the Bianconeri across the last two seasons but leaves with a haul of seven Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia trophies.

He made his Juventus breakthrough following their demotion to Serie B and in 2007 he helped the team secure promotion back to the top flight alongside the likes of Gianluigi Buffon and Alessandro Del Piero.

A season on loan at Empoli followed, but Marchisio’s influence grew steadily once he returned to Turin.

Juventus announced Marchisio’s departure in a statement on their official website, thanking him for his contribution over 389 appearances, across which he scored 37 goals.
