Juan Manuel Iturbe: Has joined Roma

The Roman giants held off Serie A champions Juventus to land the 21-year-old, who only joined the club from Porto last summer.

Iturbe was a huge success in Verona and that led to most of Serie A's top clubs battling for him, but in the end Roma held off Juve to clinch a deal.

Iturbe, who will be replaced at Verona by Mounir Obbadi - who has joined on a season-long loan from Monaco - has agreed a five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico.

Joining Iturbe at Roma is Dutch international Urby Emanuelson, who comes in from AC Milan on a free transfer, signing a one-year deal.

"I did well at AC Milan but the final year was tough," he said. "I'm here to show I'm a good player."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
