OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Romulo

August 3, 2014 - 8:22 am

Juventus FC have completed the signing of Romulo on a €1m loan deal with an option to buy for €6m.

The Brazilian-Italian winger underwent his medical in Turin yesterday and was announced as a Juventus player in the afternoon.

A buy-out clause  is included in the deal which becomes mandatory provided Romulo plays “at least 60 per cent of their official games this season.”

The official statement from the club notes that €6m is to be paid over three years, although there could be another €1m of hidden add-ons.

The transfer has been completed in time for the 27-year-old to travel with Juventus for their pre-season tour of Asia, which begins on Monday.

    Well, can’t complain too much about this deal, it’s a good try out. If it doesn’t work he’s gone and if he’s decent enough, he’s rather cheap. All we need is Marotta to open his eyes and only make it permanent if he’s worth it

    Vidal joins the team for the Asia tour. Guess we are keeping him. Good news.

    Also, more rumors of mustafi to Juve.

    Romulo are surely a late bloomer. He was no one until Verona signed him and made 6 goals and 8 assists last season. Since a decent wing back are not easy to find, I hope he will do well.

    Idk why Marotta wont just offer Ogbonna for either Mustafi or Savic. Im sure he would more than likely fit into either teams starting 11, and hes clearly not wanted here. Do it Marotta, thats your kind of deal, one that costs very little actual money.

    • Avatar
      BelgianJuventino August 4, 2014 at 2:14 pm

      I’d love to have Mustafi at Juve and since Ogbonna never plays anyway, that might just be a really sweet deal

      20m? They better dip him in gold first. Try 15m, and thats being nice.

        ImSoCool12345 August 4, 2014 at 6:45 pm

        I actually think that’s a good price for him. He’s 29 meaning he’s got about 2-3 years left before he begins to deteriorate.

        Although I don’t like him, he was extremely bright with Argentina and from what I remember with Napoli (haven’t watched him in PSG though).

          tpick August 4, 2014 at 6:59 pm

          He hasnt done shit for PSG but get older. 20m for someone who sits on the bench at his current club and is basically 30?

            DutchJuve August 4, 2014 at 7:13 pm

            This. It could be that his style of play fits Italian football though. He was brilliant for Napoli, but he had Hamsik and Cavani with him who were brilliant at the time aswell. He did play a decent world cup, too bad he didn’t play together with Tevez there so we could have seen how they work together.

        I think both Cavani and Lavezzi will leave P$G.. C’mon Marotta! use your hypnotic eye to convince P$G to give us Cavani for a loan of 1Mill and an option to buy for another 1Mil..

      Thats quite a strong starting IX. I don’t suppose we have a lot of time before the season starts so we should be looking to get the regulars comfortable with each other so..makes sense. I would like to see Coman in for GIovinco though. The squad isn’t, i don’t know, exciting. Its like a day away but i basically know exactly what ill see tomorrow…which is a bit sad even if its a win.
