Juventus defender Chiellini never interested in Real Madrid

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini says he wasn't tempted by talk of a move to Real Madrid.

Chiellini had received interest from Real Madrid when Jose Mourinho took over.

He said: "The truth is that I never directly received a proposal. I know that Beppe Marotta spoke to someone, but you'd have to ask him for the details.

"I was given absolute reassurance by the director general that Juve were not interested in selling me. Mind you, everyone has a price when faced with a crazy offer."
