Today marks an end of an era at Juventus, as  one of the club legends Claudio Marchisio parted with the Serie A champions after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.



It is informatively important to note that Marchisio joined the Bianconcri's academy in 1993, which means, he has been with Juventus since 7 year of age and spent 25 years at Juventus.

The 32-year-old midfielder, capped 55 times by Italy, made his first-team breakthrough in 2006-07 as Juve tackled Serie B in the wake of the Calciopoli scandal. He spent the following season on loan at Empoli and returned to become a first-team fixture in Turin, making a total of 389 appearances, scoring 37 goals. Marchisio won the first of seven consecutive Scudetti in 2011-12 and also has four winners' medals from the Coppa Italia.

Injury problems have blighted him, however, particularly in the aftermath of a ruptured cruciate ligament suffered in April 2016.

Juventus have confirmed the departure of their legend through their twitter account  and bid him best of luck in his future endeavours.
