Juventus sign Romulo on season-long loan

The 27-year-old impressed in Serie A last season and caught the eye of the Bianconeri, who have the option to buy the midfielder for €6 million next summer

Juventus have bolstered their midfield by completing the €1 million loan signing of Romulo from Serie A rivals Verona.

As part of the deal, Juve have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the 2014-15 campaign for €6million, which would be paid over the course of three years. 

Verona only acquired full ownership of Romulo last month following a hugely impressive loan period with the club, where he notched six goals to help push them to a strong 10th-place finish last season.

The former Fiorentina man, who made 33 appearances in the Serie A last season, saw his form earn him an inclusion in Italy's provisional 30-man World Cup squad, although he didn't make the final cut.

The 27-year-old will now link up with Juve as they bid to claim a fourth consecutive Serie A title under new coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Juve have recruited extensively in the transfer window, bringing the likes of Alvaro Morata, Patrice Evra and promising former Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Kingsley Coman to Turin.
