The deal is a two-year loan agreement which includes an obligation to buy, it will cost Juventus €3m (£2.7m) in the first year and €7m (£6.35m) for the second year, according to Sky in Italy.

Exercising the obligation to buy will cost a further €40m (£36.3m) and further bonuses could take the total cost of the transfer to €60m (£54.4m).
