Estigarribia has Juve medical

Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia completed his medical at Juventus on Friday ahead of his move to the Italian giants.

The Bianconeri have confirmed that the Paraguayan underwent a series of tests at three medical facilities earlier today.

The 23-year-old flew into Italy on Thursday after it emerged that he would be joining the club on loan for the new season.

The South American is contracted to French outfit Le Mans, but he spent last term in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys.

The loan of the player has cost Juve around €450,000, while the option to buy clause is reportedly set at €5m.

He's a left-sided midfielder.
