Juventus have signed midfielder Romulo Souza Orestes on loan from Hellas Verona with an option to buy.
Juve will pay one million euros ($1.34 million) to loan the Brazilian-born Italian, with the option to buy worth six million euros ($8 million), the defending Serie A champions said on their website.
The option is automatically exercised if Romulo plays in at least 60 per cent of Juve's official matches this coming season.
He was loaned to Verona before making the move official last month but has now moved on again, given the opportunity to play in the Champions League with Juve.
