Official: Juventus sign Emanuele Giaccherini from Cesena for €6 million (£5.3m)

The Serie A giants have confirmed their 'definitive acquisition' of the 26-year-old striker from Stadio Dino Manuzzi
Juventus have completed the transfer of striker Emanuele Giaccherini from Cesena for a fee of €6 million (£5.3m), with a co-ownership deal in place.

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

A statement on Juventus' official website read: "Juventus Football Club announces the agreement with A.C. Cesena for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Emanuele Giaccherini for a consideration of €6 million (£5.3m) to be paid in 3 years.

"At the same time, Juventus and Cesena signed a player sharing agreement related to the same player for a consideration of €3 million (£2.6m) to be paid by Cesena in 3 years."

A delighted Giaccherini said: "I will give everything for this shirt."

The deal means that while Juventus have bought the player's full rights now, they have agreed to sell half of those rights back to Cesena for €3m (£2.6m) if they wish at a later date.

The striker is the latest player to arrive at the Serie A outfit, but could soon be joined by Paraguay's Marcelo Estigabarria, who is in Turin for his medicals.
