MILAN: Italian international midfielder Claudio Marchisio has called time on his Juventus career after 25 years spent with the Turin giants.

The 32-year-old, nicknamed The Little Prince, joined his hometown club at the age of seven and won seven Serie A titles and four Italian Cups.

Juventus agreed to terminate the 55-times capped Italian international’s contract by “mutual consent” before last night’s transfer deadline in Italy.

“A thousand thoughts and a thousand images accompanied me throughout the night,” wrote Marchisio in an Instagram post accompanied by a photo that showed him playing for a Juventus youth team as a child.

“I can’t stop looking at this photograph and those stripes on which I wrote my life story as a man and a player. I love this jersey to such a degree that, despite everything, I am convinced that what is best for the team comes first. Always.”
