Chiellini agent drops United hint
18 Jun 2010 - 08:11:56
Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini's agent has welcomed reported interest in the Italy international from Manchester United.
Chiellini has been linked with a £25million move to Old Trafford this summer and agent Davide Lippi has dropped a strong hint that his client would be interested in joining the Red Devils.
"Manchester United? It is a club of great importance and we particularly like that," he told Italian radio.
"With Giorgio we have decided not to talk about the market until after the World Cup, then we will reflect on everything."
Meanwhile, Lippi has hinted that a lack of talks over a new contract could lead to the 25-year-old centre-half seeking a summer transfer.
"Giorgio signed a contract with Juventus two years ago when he was young and he has now enjoyed two great seasons and reached a top level," he added.
"It is time for Chiellini to have the contract of a top player.
"We have talked of renewing, but not with the new board. They don't seem to be in any hurry to lock down a key man like Giorgio."
