Serie A champions Juventus are on the verge of signing Hellas Verona midfielder Romulo, Tuttosport has revealed.
The Bianconeri have agreed to pay €1 million for a season-long loan, while they will have the option to make the transfer permanent for additional €6 million.
Juventus officials have yet to find an understanding with the player’s representatives, but his €1.2 yearly wage is unlikely to be a problem.
Romulo was in scintillating form for Hellas Verona last term and the fact he can play at right-back as well as further up the pitch makes him a very good signing for the Bianconeri.
Juventus yesterday announced the loan capture of midfielder Roberto Pereyra from Udinese, while they had earlier signed forward Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
Club’s first pre-season friendly did not go according to plan though with the Old Lady losing to fifth division side Lucento in Max Allegri’s first game in the dugout.
