Giorgio Chiellini is currently plying his trade at Los Angeles FC.
The Juventus legend decide to leave Turin this summer ending his 18-year spell at the club.
In an recent interview, he revealed he came close to joining Real Madrid in 2010.
He currently resides at LA and is the teammate of former Real Madrid player Gareth Bale.
In an interview with Marca, he said: “The truth is that I never thought of going to another team in Europe in recent years because I am too attached to Juventus. I was close to Real Madrid, but in 2010, a long, long time ago.
“I don’t know (what happened), I was young. The clubs also did not reach an agreement. I think I’ve been lucky to spend my entire career at Juventus. Of course Real Madrid is a fantastic club, I see it from afar. I’ve always loved them, even when they beat me.
“After spending your career and making history in a club like Juventus, with everything it has given me, it is impossible to think of another team. I really consider myself lucky for that.”
