Sami Khedira has signed a new contract at Juventus, extending his contact until the summer of 2021. The Serie A champions also have an option for a one year extension.
“I just extended my contract at Juventus until 2021,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Since my first day I’ve had a special feeling and it quickly felt like home here. I’m very proud to be a part of the great history of the club and of the Juventus family. Let’s continue to make black and white history.”
The Germany International joined the Turin Side from Real Madrid back in 2015 and has been a mainstay in the team since then, winning three consecutive Serie A titles. He has made 113 appearances for the club so far and he has played more minutes than any other player, amassing a total of 8882 in all competitions.
The 31 year old was a regular for the Serie A giants last season, scored a career best 9 goals and providing 2 assists in 26 Serie A appearances and helping them to win the title.
However, he was linked with an exit during the summer transfer window as the club completed the signing of midfielder Emre Can on a free transfer from Liverpool but a deal never materialised before the transfer deadline.
The Italian side have won all the games so far this season with the midfielder netting during the club’s 3-2 win over Chievo Verona on the opening weekend, and also featured in the wins over Lazio and Parma.
Khedira is one of Europe’s most decorated players and has won league titles in Germany with Stuttgart, Spain and Italy, and also won the World Cup with Germany in 2014.
