The agent of Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini says they'll give the Turin club first option this summer.

The agent of Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini says they'll give the Turin club first option this summer.

Manchester United and Manchester City are chasing Chiellini and Davide Lippi confirmed their interest earlier this week.

This morning, Lippi told TMW: "He has a contract with Juventus which expires in 2013 and we want to respect it, we have talked to the club and will try to renew it before the World Cup.

"His will is to stay at Juventus, but with a proper contract, reviewed and reassessed.

"If Real Madrid, Manchester United or Chelsea are thinking of a defender, it is obvious Chiellini will be among the first names considered."
