Roma have officially signed Brazilian defender Juan for 6.3 million euros plus interest. The former Bayer Leverkusen player signed a four-year contract, earning 3.1 million euros per season. Meanwhile, Christian Chivu is still at the centre of transfer speculation. Rumours from Spain suggest the player is close to joining Barcelona, with the blaugranas asking for two weeks’ time in order to complete the deal. Roma general manager Rosella Sensi said today about the Rumanian international: “Chivu is still a Roma player, he has one year left on his contract.” Inter president Moratti instead denied the club are after Chivu, saying: “We have not been speaking to Roma about him. We are on good terms with them, but we have not been talking about Chivu.”
