Felipe Melo finally exits Juve

Galatasaray have completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Felipe Melo from Juventus for an initial €3.75 million.

Felipe Melo has spent the last two seasons with Galatasaray.
Felipe Melo has spent the last two seasons on loan with the Turkish side.

Melo joined Juve in a €25 million deal from Fiorentina in 2009, but he failed to live up to expectations and has spent the last two seasons on loan at Galatasaray.

The 30-year-old, who has won 22 caps for his country and featured at the 2010 World Cup, will now join the Turkish side on a permanent basis.

A statement on the Italian side’s official website read: “Juventus Football Club can announce that Brazilian midfielder Felipe Melo de Carvalho has today been sold to Turkish side Galatasaray for an initial fee of €3.75 million.

“The payment could rise by a further €0.5 million should the player achieve certain sporting targets stipulated in the agreement between the two clubs.”
