Roma sign Juan Itube on a five-year deal from Hellas Verona for around £17m.

Roma have completed the signing of Juan Iturbe after the 21-year-old's proposed move to Juventus broke down.

The Giallorossi have landed the youngster for around €22m (£17m) after his switch from Hellas Verona to Juve was cancelled following the resignation of Antonio Conte.

The Serie A champions have since employed former AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, but Iturbe has chosen to move to the Stadio Olimpico.

A statement on Roma's official website read: "AS Roma announces that it has signed a contract with Hellas Verona for the definitive acquisition of the rights to the player Iturbe for a fee of €22m."

Iturbe has signed a five-year deal with Rudi Garcia's side.
