Juventus have announced the financial details of their Dejan Kulusevski deal, paying Atalanta €35m plus up to €9m bonuses, but he’ll stay at Parma on loan.
The 19-year-old passed his medical in Turin this morning before signing the contract to June 2024 at the club headquarters.
A statement from the Bianconeri confirmed the cost of the operation is €35m plus up to €9m in add-ons and bonuses.
“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that the agreement with Atalanta B.C. S.p.A. for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Dejan Kulusevski has been finalized for a consideration of € 35 million payable in five financial years.
“The purchase value may increase of maximum € 9 million on achieving given conditions in the course of the durations of the contract.
“Juventus and the player have signed a contract of employment until 30 June 2024. At the same time, Juventus has reached an agreement with Parma Calcio 1913 S.r.l. for the free loan until 30 June 2020 of the registration rights of the same player.”
It’s a huge profit for Atalanta, who picked him up aged 16 from IF Bromma for their youth academy in 2016 for just €165,000.
Parma reportedly turned down the chance to take Marko Pjaca for six months instead, so Kulusevski will see out the remainder of his season-long loan spell at the Stadio Tardini and join Juventus from June.
Kulusevski made a big impression this season, contributing four goals and seven assists in 17 Serie A appearances for Parma.
