Internacional defender Juan Jesus has confirmed he “should be in Italy on January 7 or 8. I just have to sign” for Inter.
The 20-year-old Brazilian has been in negotiations for several weeks and looks set to be their first major reinforcement of the transfer window.
“I think I should be in Italy on January 7 or 8,” Juan Guilhermo Nunes Jesus told FCInter1908.it.
“Is it all done? I just have to sign and be given my official presentation to the media.”
Juan is a centre-back who has already won the Under-20 World Cup and Under-20 South American Cup with Brazil in 2011.
