Juventus sign Tomas Rincon from Genoa for initial 8 million euros

Madrid, Spain – Juventus have officially completed the signing of Tomas Rincon from Serie A rivals Genoa on a three-and-a-half-year contract, the club confirmed.

Venezuela international Rincon, who has been training with the Bianconeri in recent days after passing a medical, arrives in Turin for an initial 8 million euros, which Juve said could grow to 9m euros “on achieving given conditions in the course of the duration of the contract.”

The 28-year-old could make his debut against Crotone on Sunday.

Rincon, who has won 81 caps for Venezuela, joined Genoa on a free transfer from Hamburg in 2014 and made 78 Serie A appearances for the Rossoblu.

Juventus are four points clear at the top of Serie A with a game in hand, and face Bologna on their return to action after the winter break on Sunday.

He becomes Juve’s first signing this winter after they missed out on signing Axel Witsel from Zenit St Petersburg.
