"It's a long and intense story; the one that links Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus," the club said in a statement.
"And it's a story that will continue to develop until 2024, after he officially penned in his contract renewal with the club today.

"He is the player who, even this season, hasn't stopped.
"In total, he has featured for Juventus in 1440 minutes of action played since the first official game at the end of August.

Bonucci has won 14 trophies in total with Juventus since arriving from southerners Bari in 2010, including seven Scudetto titles.
This season he has been promoted to captain while Giorgio Chiellini recovers from injury.
