Juventus have announced the signing of Serbia attacker Milos Krasic from CSKA Moscow after a prolonged transfer saga.
The 26-year-old moves to Italy for a fee of €15million, and is set to fly to Turin to sign a five-year contract with the Old Lady.
Krasi moved to CSKA in 2004 and won two Russian titles, four Russian Cups and a Uefa Cup during his time in Moscow.
A statement on the club’s official website said: “Juventus have signed PFC CSKA midfielder Milos Krasic, who will travel to Turin to sign his personal contract within the next few days.”
Krasic told Tuttosport: “I am the happiest man in the world. I have always believed in Juventus, even when everything seemed difficult, I was sure everything would be solved and I was right.
“The project of Juventus convinced me right away, I like very much the idea of being one of the players who have the responsibility of creating a new cycle and a winning group.
“This club has a history. I am happy to join it.”
Krasic has been compared to former Czech Republic international Pavel Nedved, who spent eight years with Juve.
When asked about the comparison, Krasic added: “Pavel is a great person and a football legend of world, not just of the history of Juventus.
“In short, even being compared to him fills me with pride. I am not yet equal to Nedved, but I’ll work even harder to be able to follow his own steps.”
