Verona have now confirmed that they have signed Juan Manuel Iturbe from Porto outright, after an impressive season on loan.
Porto confirmed last week that the Serie A side had exercised their previously agreed purchase fee of €15m to sign the 20-year-old permanently, and now Hellas has confirmed the same today.
“Hellas Verona announces that it has excercised the right of redemption, outright, for the player Juan Manuel Iturbe from Porto,” began Verona’s statement released on their official website.
“JMI15 is all yellow and blue!”
Iturbe is seen as having attracted admirers from across European football and the Gialloblu are expected to sell him on later this summer.
