Zenit St Petersburg have completed the signing of Italian midfielder Claudio Marchisio on a free transfer.
Claudio Marchisio, 32, joined the Juventus academy aged seven and spent 13 seasons in Turin as a senior player, but was released by the club on August 17.
“I like the club and its ambition,” Marchisio said in a statement on the Zenit website. “When I left Juventus, I promised that I wouldn’t move to another Italian team, so I wanted to find a club which shared my values.”
Marchisio has played 55 times for Italy, but only once since 2015.
The midfielder won Serie A seven times with Juventus and joins a Zenit side looking to win the Russian Premier League for the first time since 2015.
