Juve buy Marrone, sell Peluso

Juventus have bought Luca Marrone outright from Sassuolo and in exchange sold to them Federico Peluso.

In a single statement released on their website, the Bianconeri have confirmed that they have re-signed midfielder Marrone outright, agreeing to pay €5m for the remaining 50 per cent of his registration.

At the same time, the Old Lady has allowed Peluso to move in the opposite direction to the Neroverdi, for a fee of €4.5m.

“Juventus Football Club and U.S. Sassuolo Calcio have today reached an agreement on two transfer deals concerning Luca Marrone and Federico Peluso,” Juve’s statement on the matter reads.

“Marrone, who spent last season on a co-ownership agreement with the Neroverdi, will return to Juventus after the club paid a €5 million fee for the remaining 50 per cent of his transfer rights. He has signed a five-year contract.

“Peluso, meanwhile, will join Sassuolo on a permanent basis after both clubs agreed a €4.5m fee payable over three years for the defender’s services.”

Peluso had been listed in a number of transfer stories as a possible makeweight for the Bianconeri in negotiations for other players.
