Claudio Marchisio has left Serie A champions Juventus after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
The 32-year-old midfielder, capped 55 times by Italy, made his first-team breakthrough in 2006-07 as Juve tackled Serie B in the wake of the Calciopoli scandal.
He spent the following season on loan at Empoli and returned to become a first-team fixture in Turin, making a total of 389 appearances, scoring 37 goals.
Marchisio won the first of seven consecutive Scudetti in 2011-12 and also has four winners’ medals from the Coppa Italia.
Injury problems have blighted him, however, particularly in the aftermath of a ruptured cruciate ligament suffered in April 2016.
