Juventus sign Alberto Masi from Pro Vercelli

The Serie A champions have secured the services of the young defender, who played a key role in his former club's promotion to Serie B last season
Juventus have announced on their official website that they have signed Alberto Masi from Pro Vercelli.

The 19-year-old defender underwent a routine medical checkup at the Clinica Fornaca di Sessant and at the Istituto di Medicina dello Sport in Turin on Friday morning before signing a co-ownership contract with the Bianconeri.

He made 28 appearances at Pro Vercelli in 2011-12, scoring one goal as the club secured promotion to Serie B.

Masi's signing comes just 48 hours after Juventus completed the free transfer of former Inter defender Lucio, who was out of contract at San Siro.
