Juventus have completed the signing of Paraguay international Marcelo Estigarribia on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old arrives from Deportivo Maldonado on a deal that includes the option for the move to be made permanent next summer.

Estigarribia is capable of turning out on the left wing or in the middle of midfield and will provide a useful option to Juve boss Antonio Conte.

He impressed while on loan at Newell's Old Boys last season and caught the eye again at this summer's Copa America.

"I am really excited," said Estigarribia.


"This is a dream come true.

"It is fantastic and also unexpected. I just want to enjoy this moment.

"I am very proud to be here at Juventus. It is not every day that you get the chance to play for a big club and now it is up to me to prove that I belong here."

Juve will pay five million euros (£4.4m) for Estigarriba should they wish to make his move permanent.
