Chiellini: Mad to leave Juventus - even for Real Madrid

Giorgio Chiellini says he wouldn't consider leaving Juventus.

Juve have reinforced with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente this summer.

"Every summer I hear transfer stories around me or Claudio Marchisio, but a lot of it is fantasy football," the defender told Tuttosport .

"Beppe Marotta said clearly that this is not a selling club. Besides, it would be crazy to leave Juventus now that the project is taking off, even if Real Madrid came calling.

"Just think about it, who would've imagined Antonio Conte winning the Scudetto in his first season? Can you remember the US pre-season tour? We really struggled in friendlies and things weren't going well, yet we arrived ahead of schedule. Now we've added a few extra players, learned to know each other and are more solid."
