OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Stefano Sturaro

July 1, 2014 - 2:15 pm

For a club that is often derided for mishandling youth players, Juventus sure do sign lots of young and exciting talents. The latest on this list is Stefano Sturaro, who was officially unveiled as a Juventus player today after agreeing to a transfer from his original club, Genoa C.F.C.

The move will cost Juventus 5.5 million euros over three years, with various clauses and bonuses seeing that figure increase if Sturaro does well. Sturaro has also been loaned back to Genoa for the upcoming 2014-2015 season, so he will have more time to develop before getting thrown to the lions aka playing for Juventus. Here’s the club’s official statement:

“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that the agreement with Genoa Cricket and F.C. S.p.A. for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Stefano Sturaro has been finalized. The contract envisages the payment by Juventus of € 5.5 million in 3 years. The purchase value may increase by a further maximum of € 3.5 million on achieving given sports performances in the course ofthe duration of the contract from 2015/2016 football season. Juventus and the player have signed a 5-year contract of employment. At the same time, for 2014/2015 football season Juventus has reached an agreement with Genoa for the free temporary disposal of the registration rights of the same player and a performance bonus to be paid to Genoa by a further maximum of € 2 million on achieving given sports performances in the course of 2014/2015 football season.”

Sturaro, who was born in Sanremo, made 16 appearances for Genoa last season. You may remember his lone goal from the season, against Catania. He was hardly a world beater, but he showed enough promise to catch the eyes of Juventus management. Given the relative abundance of talent in the midfield, it’s a good sign for Sturaro’s ability that the club signed him. Prior to last season Sturaro had also spent a season on loan with Modena, and he has 11 caps for Italy’s various international youth teams, having made his U21 debut this past April in a friendly versus Montenegro.

Welcome to the Juventus family, Stefano.

    I don’t think it’s Co ownership. Juve own him outright but he will stay at genoa on loan

    I still dont get it, why are we spending these millions on serie a players ? I think we need more than that to reach the top level. We’re done from Serie A already, we have the experience in serie a, we need some outsiders to help us in CL. Pogba and Vidal are probably going to go. We need some alternatives.

        Who will be sold, just like Pogba soon. What’s the purpose? what future are you talking about? Juve are naive when it comes on keeping youngsters and preparing them for the future. Pogba will most likely leave this summer if not then the next summer.

            You are missing the point bud. Try to read between the lines and notice something about Juve. We are not good at handling youngsters, that’s a fact and we all know and no one can deny it.
