Juve announce Vucinic swoop

Mirko Vucinic is officially a Juventus player after the Turin giants completed his swoop from Roma.

The club have announced that the striker, who underwent a medical today, has put pen to paper on a four-year contract with La Signora.

Roma will receive €15m from the Bianconeri for the former Lecce man. That fee will be paid over a three-year period.

Vucinic has been paired with Juve for most of the summer after he asked for a transfer away from the capital city outfit.

Juve made their decisive move after failing in bids to land Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero and Giuseppe Rossi of Villarreal. Aguero has now joined Manchester City.

Vucinic has been at Roma since 2006 and he's scored 65 goals in 202 appearances, across all competitions, for the Stadio Olimpico side.
