Juventus desperate to tie down Chiellini ahead of Man City

Juventus are battling to keep hold of defender Giorgio Chiellini.

La Stampa says Manchester City have registered their interest with Chiellini's minders, who are also in talks over a new deal at Juve.

Juve are willing to hand Chiellini a new €2 million-a-year contract to keep him in Turin until 2013.

But City boss Roberto Mancini remains keen and has the spending power to blow Juve out of the water.
