Juventus have bolstered their midfield by completing the loan capture of Romulo from Serie A rivals Verona.
The 27-year-old has joined on a season-long loan for a fee of €1million.
As part of the deal, Juventus have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the 2014-15 campaign for €6million, which would be paid over the course of three years.
Verona only acquired full ownership of Romulo last month following a hugely impressive loan period with the club.
The former Fiorentina man made 33 appearances in that spell, scoring six goals.
Romulo was called into Italy’s provisional 30-man squad for the World Cup but was omitted by coach Cesare Prandelli prior to their unsuccessful campaign.
He will now link up with Juve as they bid to claim a fourth consecutive Serie A title under new coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Juve have recruited extensively in the transfer window, bringing the likes of Alvaro Morata, Patrice Evra and promising former Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Kingsley Coman to Turin.
