OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Kwadwo Asamoah outright, renew Mauricio Isla's co-ownership

Claudio Villa

Sometimes we're told in the transfer market to expect the unexpected. Well, Juventus' second 'purchase' of the summer transfer window is anything but a shock. Maybe somebody should tell Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici that they're boring us. Or that they're doing a good job.

Whatever works. Moving on.

Juventus shocked nobody and bought the second half of Kwadwo Asamoah's contract from Udinese, securing the Ghanian midfielder-tuened-wingback. And at the same time, a natural wingback, Mauricio Isla, saw his co-ownership deal renewed between Juve and Udinese — certainly adding fuel to the fire when it comes to talk of which jersey he will be wearing next season.

Here's Wednesday's moves, as it's said on Juventus' official website:

Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that it has terminated the current co-ownership agreement with Udinese Calcio S.p.A. (ex art. 102 bis N.O.I.F.) concerning the registration rights of Kwadwo Asamoah. The summe for the termination has been set at €9 million and will be paid by Juventus over the next three financial years. This acquisition will generate economic and financial effects starting from 1 July 2013.

The contract of employment by the player will last until 30 June 2017.

Futhermore, Juventus and Udinese have renewed the co-ownership deals concerning the registration rights of Mauricio Anibal Isla and Cristian Pasquato until 30 June 2014.

Pretty much what we all expected to happen took place today. Asamoah became an important piece to the Juventus puzzle as a he transformed from central midfielder to wingback on the left flank while Isla, well, that's already been discussed at length.

The rumors are still floating out there regarding where exactly the 25-year-old Chilean will be playing next season, with the player's main objective being regular playing time. Juve and Inter and reportedly a few million euros apart from one another when it comes to negotiations for the Bianconeri's half of Isla's contract.

Yeah, we like that you're here for good, too, Asa. #BOH #BOH #BOH #BOH
