Juventus have completed the signing of AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic.
A statement on the clubs website said: “Juventus Football Club can today confirm that Miralem Pjanic has completed a permanent switch from Roma for a fee of €32m. The 26-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the club.”
Pjanic handed in an official transfer request on Saturday. The player informed Roma that he wished to activate a release clause in his contract that allowed him to leave for a pre-agreed amount, adding that he would pay 20% of the fee himself, with Juventus making up the balance.
The player joined Roma from Lyon in 2011 for €11m and last season scored 10 goals in 33 league appearances, while also providing 12 assists. After spending most of his youth in Luxembourg, he established himself as one of the best players in Serie A with a knack for scoring spectacular goals.
