Romero to join Juventus, says Genoa president
Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has confirmed Juventus are set to sign defender Cristian Romero.
Romero has repeatedly been linked with the Serie A champions in recent months, with reports suggesting he will join for a €30million fee.
The Argentina youth international only moved to Italy at the start of the season but has impressed in 24 league appearances for Genoa in 2018-19.
And it now appears he will make the switch to Juve at the end of the campaign, following striker Krzysztof Piatek - who joined AC Milan in the previous transfer window - out of the club.
"You all know that there is a negotiation in progress - [Romero] will go to Juventus," Preziosi told Primocanale.
Allegri: "At the end of the season I will have to sit down with the President so that we can plan for the future with a clear picture. Every year Juve must be competitive and challenge for everything. I have the right motivation to continue here."#JuveToro#ForzaJuve— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) May 2, 2019
"The sale of Piatek and that of Romero will definitely put the club's accounts in order. The sale of Piatek, from a corporate point of view, was a very good move.
"Genoa's finances are very healthy. We will have no debt to the treasury within this year."
Piatek left Genoa for Milan in a reported €35m move in January, having netted 13 Serie A goals since the start of the season. He has scored eight since joining the Rossoneri.
