Kluivert: ‘At Roma to improve’

Justin Kluivert believes he can become a “bigger, stronger player” at Roma, after completing his move today.

The 19-year-old has joined the Giallorossi for an initial €17.25m, with a potential €1.5m in bonuses and a 10 per cent sell-on clause worth a maximum €4m.

“I’m feeling great,” Kluivert told Roma’s official website.

“I’m at an unbelievable club and I can’t wait to start. I think Roma is a great club for me - I think they can build me into a bigger, stronger player and I can do some nice things here.”

The signing is another coup for sporting director Monchi, who also spoke to the website.

“I think that Justin is already one of the most exciting young players in European football. Because of this it was not easy to bring him to Roma ahead of a number of other clubs.

“But Justin believes Roma is the perfect club for him to continue his development and realise his enormous potential.”
