Squillaci's composed performances in Le Championnat last season earned him admiration from Juventus with the Serie A giants eager to have first option on his services.
But a move away from Stade Louis II would appear to be on hold until at least next summer after the 22-year-old inked a fresh deal.
The stopper's contract had been due to expire in 2005 but he is now tied to the Principality club until 2007.
Despite interest from the Italian champions, Squillaci had no qualms in pledging his future to Monaco and was happy to have resolved the issue.
"The club had wished to extend my contract for a while," said Squillaci.
"But with the problems they had, there were more priority cases and I was in no hurry.
"I am delighted, that is what I wanted so there was no trouble."
