De Sciglio Joins Juventus

Mattia De Sciglio has completed a €12 million move from AC Milan to Serie A champions Juventus.

The Italy international defender has penned a five-year deal with Juve and will not be part of the Rossoneri’s revolution under Vincenzo Montella.

The right-back will be expected to replace Dani Alves, after the Brazilian left for Paris Saint-Germain following a solitary season in Turin.

De Sciglio’s capture comes a day after Juve signed Wojciech Szczesny from Arsenal and adds to the arrivals of Rodrigo Bentancur and Douglas Costa.

De Sciglio already has the experience of 133 senior appearances and 31 Italy caps, having made his Milan bow as an 18-year-old.
