The veteran midfielder has been with Juve since 2001 and he said: "I do not know yet if I will continue. Surely in the coming years I will devote more time to golf, because now is the end.

"Will I continue? We'll see. I still have a couple of weeks to think about it and decide whether to continue.

"I still have a few days for this important decision. For me, playing for Juventus has always been a great honour. I enjoyed it a lot in recent years. In a few days I'll decide my future."
