Juventus have officially signed Marco Borriello on loan from Roma with an option to buy for €8m.
The striker underwent his medical a few days ago and the move has been agreed for at least a week.
“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announce we have completed the agreement with A.S. Roma S.p.A. for the temporary signing of Marco Borriello for €0.5m to be paid during the current campaign,” read a statement on the Bianconeri website.
“The contract also gives Juventus the chance to exercise its option at the end of the 2011-12 season to sign the player on a permanent basis for €8m, payable in three instalments.”
The 29-year-old had joined Roma from Milan in the summer of 2009 on loan with a mandatory option to buy.
