Isla swaps Juve for Cagliari

Mauricio Isla has called time on his career with Serie A champions Juventus by signing for newly-promoted Cagliari on a three-year deal.

The Chile international, who helped his country win back-to-back Copa America titles this year and last, departs the Juventus Stadium after four seasons in Turin.

Isla joined the Bianconeri in 2012 from league rivals Udinese and won the Scudetto in his first two campaigns at the club, but he fell out of favour with Massimiliano Allegri following the Italian's appointment as manager in 2014.

The 28-year-old right-back subsequently spent the next two seasons on loan with Queens Park Rangers and Marseille respectively, although he has now been allowed to leave for Sardinia on a permanent basis.

"Juventus Football Club can today confirm that Mauricio Isla has completed a permanent move to Cagliari," read a statement on the Old Lady's official website.

"The Chilean defender's registration rights have been acquired for a fee of 4million euros, to be paid in three financial years, generating a positive economic effect of approximately 0.7million euros."
