SKY Sport Italia claim that Fiorentina have signed Felipe Melo over to Juventus. The Brazilian will sign the contract himself next week, and officially become a Juventus player.

Juve directors met with Fiorentina chiefs this evening in order to conclude the deal and the negotiations were successful.

Melo will return from Brazil, where he is currently on holiday, early next week in order to sign his new contract and have a medical with the Turin giants. Once that is complete, the transfer will become official.

Voices in Turin imply that Juve have paid Fiorentina €21million in cash plus given the full rights of Marco Marchionni to the Viola. The Italian will earn €1.3m over three years at the Artemio Franchi.
