Genoa have all-but-confirmed that defender Cristian Romero will join Juventus this summer.
Romero has been heavily linked with Juve for some time, and Genoa President Enrico Preziosi suggested a sale was close to going through.
“For Romero, negotiations have started with Juve,” he told Primocanale.
“His transfer will help to put our budget in order.”
Many Grifone fans have yet to forgive Preziosi for selling Krzysztof Piatek to Milan in January, so would the patron make the same decision again?
“It was something strange, but we made a big profit out of selling him.”
