Brazil coach Carlos Dunga has hailed Juventus' transfer of Felipe Melo, believing the Brazilian midfielder, alongside his co-national Diego, will bring trophies back to Turin.

The Bianconeri have bagged Melo from Fiorentina in a reported €25 million deal, a move they are expected to announce as official on Monday, when the midfielder arrives in Turin for his medical. Melo, who was outstanding in helping Dunga's men lift the Confederations Cup, has received high praise from the Selecao coach.

"I think Melo and Diego will give Juventus plenty of success. The Bianconeri have signed two extraordinary players," Dunga told Tuttosport.

The coach, who won the World Cup as Brazil’s captain in 1994, can even see a little of himself in Melo.

"The analogies are there, although every player is unique. Melo has plenty of character and this is good," added Dunga.

"He has personality and the ability to dictate the game. Melo has great vision and is always aware of what is around him."
