The Brazilian center back is the second signing that Roma have made so far to bolster their defense.
According to Inter’s twitter page Juan Jesus has left Riscone di Brunico to join Roma at Pinzolo. The deal is rumoured to be on loan with a buy back clause of 10 million euro.
The buy back clause will be activated after a certain number of appearances in official matches.
Juan Jesus is a Brazilian defender who started his professional career at Internacional in 2010 and made 25 appearances in 2 years. He was transferred to Inter in January of 2012, where he made 105 appearances and scored 1 goal.
He is a versatile player that can play both in the middle of the defense or on the left, which makes him an valuable asset to the Giallorossi who have had numerous issues on defense with injuries and need to add depth to their backline.
