Juventus veteran ready to sign a new deal

The 36-year-old’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season and reports have previously suggested that the forward wanted a lucrative last contract with the club

“I read stories with my name referenced to certain behaviours that do not belong to me and it makes me bitter,” he said on his personal website.

“The motivation of my career has been my deep love for Calcio, Juventus and the fans. Money is not my main concern as I have already gained a lot in life. I could make more money by accepting offers from other clubs but that’s not what I want.

“I told the president that my motivation to sign a new deal is not economic but instead a desire to win again. I want to underline my love for the club and the fans. I want to sign the last contract of my career with Juventus.”
