Inter have completed the signing of Brazilian defender Juan from Internacional for an undisclosed fee. The transfer has been confirmed on the official Lega Serie A website.

The Nerazzurri had long been linked with the 20-year-old defender, and have now added Juan to their ranks on a permanent basis.

Juan is a product of the Internacional youth academy and had developed into a key player at the 2010 Copa Libertadores winners since making his official debut in 2010.

The defender, who can play both as a centre-back and as a full-back, had earned himself the interest of a number of European sides, and will now continue his career in Italy.

The Brazil Under-20 star has been likened to Inter star Lucio for his style of play, and will be relishing the chance to play with his illustrious compatriot at the Giuseppe Meazza.
