TURIN – Juventus queen of the market. After buying Ramsey and Rabiot on a free transfer, Luca Pellegrini from Roma, and practically closing the deal for De Ligt, the bianconeri throw themselves headlong into Real Madrid's Isco. The blancos are willing to sell it but they value its 80 million euro tag.
Juve is strongly interested in this purchase but before perfecting it, it must try to thin out the list of attackers. Higuain (close to Rome), Mandzukic (which has a large foreign market) and Kean (which could be included in an exchange with Mauro Icardi ) would be released.
Not only Isco, Juventus formalizes agreement with Genoa for defender Romero.
Juventus Football Club SpA announces that it has finalized the agreement with the company Genoa Cricket & Football Club SpA for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Cristian Gabriel Romero against a consideration of € 26 million payable in three years .
Juventus signed a five-year performance contract with the same player until June 30, 2024.
At the same time, Juventus signed a temporary agreement with Genoa for the free transfer until June 30, 2020 of the right to sports performance of the same player with prizes in favor of Genoa for a maximum of € 5.3 million upon the achievement of certain sports goals.
Born in C ó rdoba , class 1998, Romero is back from a great season with a rossoblù shirt. A modern defender – strong of head and able to exploit his physical abilities to anticipate the attacking opponents – arrived in Italy last summer after the parenthesis at the Belgrano. With Genoa he played 27 Serie A matches, closing the league with 2 goals and as many assists: he is the third youngest defender to have taken an active part in at least 4 goals in the top-5 European championships 2018/2019, behind only Achraf Hakimi (Borussia Dortmund) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool).
Curiously, the debut in the Italian national top division did it right against Juventus at the Allianz Stadium, on 20 October 2018, when Genoa blocked the Old Lady on 1-1. The following week, here is the first goal, at Marassi against Udinese, then repeated by the May 5th seal always at home against Roma.
Romero is the youngest defender to have played at least 25 games in Serie A 2018/19 , as well as the youngest foreign defender to have found the way of the goal in the last championship played. The Argentine, in the last Serie A, is the second player of Genoa to have made more defensive rejections (119) and disagreements (61), in both cases behind only to Domenico Criscito (from the official Juventus website).
