Speaking after the 4-2 defeat by Inter Milan in Rome, Chiellini said: “I’ve done all I can, I hope I’ve left something behind”.
Chiellini won his first Scudetto with Juventus in 2011-12, going on to win nine in a row with the club before Inter’s triumph last season.
“We had these 10 magnificent years – it is up to the others to continue now,” he told Italian broadcaster Mediaset.
“On Monday I will say goodbye to my Juventus Stadium, then if I have still got something in the tank might have a run-out in Florence. It is 100% my decision”.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side are assured of a top-four finish with two league games remaining, and host Lazio on Monday before travelling to Fiorentina on 22 May.
Giorgio Chiellini had already announced his intention to retire from international football after Italy play Argentina in June at Wembley – the stadium where Italy beat England to win the Euro 2020 final last summer.
Having made his debut for Italy in 2004, he is joint fifth in the list of Italy’s most-capped players, alongside Andrea Pirlo.
However, he does not yet know whether he will continue to play at club level.
“I don’t know,” Chiellini said on his club future. “I need to think about it with my family.
“I am happy to leave at such a high level, because for many years I have said I didn’t want to finish struggling and not being able to play at my level.
“I gave it my all. Soon I will be the biggest Juventus fan from the outside. After so many years within this club, you cannot shake it off.”
