Martin Caceres has completed his move to Juventus this evening, joining from Sevilla on an initial six-month loan.
The Uruguayan full-back completed and passed his medical examinations in Turin on Friday and has now signed a contract with the Bianconeri. The transfer was confirmed in a statement on Juve’s official website.
The current League leaders will pay €1.5m to take Caceres on an initial six-month loan deal and have an option up until the end of May to sign him outright for a further €8m. Should the club not take up that option, they are liable to pay Sevilla a penalty of €1.5m.
Caceres, who takes the No 4 shirt, briefly commented on his return to Juve, stating that he was ‘happy to be back’, having previously spent the 2009-10 campaign on loan at the club.
