Official: Masi completes full Juventus move

The Italian champions have made the decision to obtain full ownership from lower-league Pro Vercelli, after the promising youngster impressed during pre-season
Juventus have announced on their official website that they have purchased the remaining 50 per cent of Alberto Masi's economical rights from Pro Vercelli for an undisclosed fee.

The centre-back joined the Serie A champions on a co-ownership deal earlier this summer, and has since impressed enough to prompt the Old Lady to obtain full ownership.

"Promising defender Alberto Masi has joined Juventus on a permanent deal after the remainder of his registration rights were purchased from Pro Vercelli," a statement on the Juve website reads.

"The 19-year-old initially agreed terms on a co-ownership agreement signed on 6 July. But following a string of impressive pre-season displays, the Bianconeri have elected to buy out the other half of his contract."

Masi recently made his debut for Italy Under-21 in the friendly against Netherlands, and is seen as one of Italy's best defensive talents.
