Marotta to unlock Romulo

Beppe Marotta will reportedly meet with Verona officials today to finalise terms of agreement for Romulo.

The Brazilian-born midfielder was seen as on his way to Turin this week for a medical and to sign off on a transfer to the Old Lady, only for delays to hold things up.

However, on from meeting with the Gialloblu yesterday, director general Marotta is expected to once more hold talks with the club to unlock the current situation.

It was feared that another club had entered into talks and potentially raised Verona’s asking price, but the Gazzetta dello Sport believe Juve will get their man on loan for an initial €1m, with a purchase option of €7m.

Reports are that the details to be settled today involve terms of payment on that €7m, with Verona hoping for a lump sum, just as the Bianconeri are keen to defer over a period of three years.

Marotta commented yesterday of his expectancy to have Romulo signed and ready to join the squad in time for their tour of Asia and Australia, which they depart for this weekend.
