Fee: €6 million
Contract: Undisclosed



Juventus have completed the transfer of Emanuele Giaccherini by paying Cesena €6 million for him, but the Emilia Romagna-based side have conserved a buy-back agreement for the future.

Giaccherini, 26, arrived in Turin to undergo his medical with the club, and after passing it he signed a contract with Antonio Conte's side.

A statement on the club's official website reads:

"Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces the agreement with A.C. Cesena S.p.A. for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Emanuele Giaccherini for a consideration of €6 million to be paid in 3 years.

"At the same time, Juventus and Cesena signed a player sharing agreement (ex art. 102 bis N.O.I.F.) related to the same player for a consideration of €3 million to be paid by Cesena in 3 years."

Speaking of the move, the player told reporters "I will give everything for this shirt."

The deal means Juventus have bought the player's full rights for €6m, but they have agreed to sell half of those rights back to Cesena for €3m if they wish at a later date.

He is the latest player to arrive at Vinovo, but could soon be joined by Le Mans and Paraguay midfielder Marcelo Estigabarria - who is in Turin for a medical.
