Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner did consider leaving in the summer.

The Swiss was linked with PSG last month.

"He did think about going,” Marco Lichtsteiner told Calcio News 24. “But we did not think it would be wise to move to another Italian club, it would have only been for a foreign one.

“Coach Conte and Stephan had a conversation during pre-season and, from that moment onwards, my brother decided that he wanted to continue wearing the black and white shirt.

“Juve are a fantastic club with an impressive history. Stephan is happy and thankful to be a part of this club.

“We are sure that Juventus will have a great future.”
