Official: Isla, Asamoah to Juventus

Juventus have confirmed the double signing of Udinese midfielders Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, both on co-ownership agreements.

Terms for such a deal were reached a few weeks ago, with both versatile midfielders then soon after having medicals in Turin.

The Bianconeri have now confirmed both players’ arrivals at the club, with publication on their official website of the finer points to the transfers.

For 50 per cent of 24-year-old Isla's contract, Juve have paid €9.4m, whilst 50 per cent of 23-year-old Asamoah’s registration has cost them €9m.

Also as part of the deal, youngster Cristian Pasquato has moved in the opposite direction on a co-ownership basis, for a fee of €1.5m.

Asamoah is the second Ghanaian to play for the Old Lady, after Stephen Appiah, whilst Isla links up with international colleague Arturo Vidal at the Juventus Stadium.
