Official: Romulo joins Juventus

Romulo has officially signed for Juventus, on loan from Verona for €1m and an option to buy for €6m.

The Brazilian-italian winger passed his medical this morning and will be presented to the media in the afternoon.

This deal includes a buy-out clause that becomes mandatory if Romulo plays “at least 60 per cent of their official games this season.”

It was originally thought to be worth €7m, but the official statement notes it is €6m to be paid over three years, although there could be another €1m of hidden add-ons.

The transfer was completed in time for the 27-year-old to travel with Juve for their pre-season tour of Asia, which begins on Monday.

Romulo impressed last season, when in a co-ownership deal with Fiorentina, scoring six goals in 32 Serie A games.

He was called up by Italy for the World Cup in Brazil, but pulled out due to injury.
