Juventus to receive €16m as Atalanta make permanent move for Romero

Juventus to receive €16m as Atalanta make permanent move for Romero

Juventus-owned centre-back Cristian Romero is set to join Atalanta on a permanent basis.

The Argentine had originally joined the Bergamo club on a two-year loan in September 2020 – for €2 million up front plus bonuses – which included an option to buy.

Atalanta have decided to exercise that option a year early, however, with the club having become fully convinced by the defender’s performances.

What next for Romero?

Having impressed so much at club level, Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni has called up Romero for the Albiceleste’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Colombia, during which he could make his national team debut.

Should Scaloni be as impressed as Atalanta with Romero’s progress, he could well go on to be a key player for his country at this summer’s Copa America, which kicks off on June 13.
