Juventus confirm Rolando Mandragora signing from Genoa for initial €6m

Rolando Mandragora will continue to get a chance to hone his midfield skills on loan at Pescara.
Italy under-21 midfielder Rolando Mandragora has signed a long-term deal with Juventus.

Juventus have confirmed the signing of Rolando Mandragora from Genoa, with the midfielder set to spend the rest of the season on loan with Pescara.

Mandragora, 18, has joined Juve for an initial fee of €6 million, which could rise to €12m depending on his success with the Serie A champions.

The midfielder has signed a five-year contract with the Bianconeri and will spend the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Serie B side Pescara.

Mandragora began his career at Juve's Serie A rivals AC Milan before joining Genoa's youth academy in the 2011-12 season.

He made his Serie A debut in October 2014 before moving to Pescara on loan last year, making 16 appearances in Serie B.

Juventus star Paul Pogba has hinted he would one day like to move to play with the likes of Messi or Ronaldo in La Liga.

The midfielder has risen through Italy's international youth ranks and currently has six caps for the Azzurri under-21s.

Juventus describe Mandragoa as having "...physical strength and tactical versatility among his main attributes, [with] his preferred position being that of sitting just in front of the defence."
