Juve buy other half of Masi

Alberto Masi is 100 per cent a Juventus player after the Old Lady signed him outright from Pro Vercelli on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old moved to Turin in the summer on a co-ownership basis, but has taken just six weeks to convince the club of his ability.

Masi is a promising defender who started his playing days in the Sampdoria youth ranks. He’s also played for Lavagnese in his career.

It’s unclear whether Masi will stay at Juventus this season or be loaned to a smaller club to gain experience.
