Romulo and Iturbe for Juve?

Romulo could be included as part of Juventus negotiations to sign Juan Manuel Iturbe from Hellas Verona.

The Bianconeri have made no secret of their interest in Iturbe, battling for his contract along with Milan, Atletico Madrid and Roma.

The price-tag for forward Iturbe is thought to be in the region of €30m (£24m), while Romulo is valued at €7m (£5.6m).

According to Tuttosport, Juve directors met with Verona today and proposed taking both players in a package deal.

Romulo’s versatility is key for Antonio Conte, as he can play right-back, on the right wing or in a more central midfield role.

It’s possible Stephan Lichtsteiner could influence the deal, as he has still not agreed a contract renewal and is on his way out of Juventus.

If the Bianconeri find a suitable replacement in Romulo, the Swiss international would be allowed to leave.
