"Our first target is the Super Cup and the upcoming games will be useful to regain our condition and perfect the movements we haven't run through for a month or so. Games against sides from other countries help increase your awareness, even though your physical condition still isn't at its peak."
Chiellini went on to reassure fans that the club's newest signings - Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Angelo Ogbonna - have enjoyed a seamless transition to life at the club and suggested that the trio of signings will aid Juve's cause in retaining their Scudetto title.
"Ogbonna's a new arrival at Juventu, but we already knew each other from both playing in the international side and living in Turin, so he certainly won't have any problems in settling in," he added.
"The same goes for Llorente and Tevez, who already speak the language. They both have enthusiasm and desire, which are fundamental ingredients for the new season."
The Italians commence their Guiness International Champions Cup campaign on Wednesday against Everton.
