It was the big signing that Juventus made with the signing of Bolognians midfield player Mario Balotelli.
The Bianconeri were also given an opportunity to sign another player, the versatile Italian striker Giacomo Bonaventura.
However, this time, the Italian club has chosen to buy from the lowest bidder.
Balotellas signing on the eve of the summer transfer window was announced on Monday by the Bianconero club.
The signing of Balotella is believed to be the first of its kind in Italian football history.
According to Mundo dello Sport, Juventus paid €10 million for the striker.
The Italian champions were also handed a €6 million buy-back option.
The sale of Balatelli comes on the back of his outstanding form.
He scored 24 goals in 37 games for the Italian champions last season, helping them win Serie A and a Champions League place.
The striker has also contributed to a number of internationals, notably scoring in the 2015 FIFA World Cup Qualifier.
Balutelli’s move to Juventus comes just one month after his contract expired.
The former AC Milan striker is set to sign a new deal with the Biancocelesti until 2022.
The move is believed by many to be a formality.
The transfer is not expected to affect the Juventus squad, which has been boosted with the arrivals of Andrea Barzagli, Sergio Marchisio, and Alessandro Florenzi.
