Sturaro signs new five-year Juve deal

First Daniele Rugani, now Stefano Sturaro. Juventus have tied down their second player in as many days on a fresh five-year contract.

Stefano Sturaro has become the second Juventus player in as many days to commit his long-term future to the Serie A champions.

On Wednesday, defender Daniele Rugani signed a new-five year deal, and Sturaro has followed suit 24 hours later.

The midfielder joined Juve from Geona in 2014, before spending most of the 2014-15 campaign back on loan at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

He was recalled in February 2015, and made 19 Serie A appearances last season - scoring once - as Juve romped to a fifth consecutive Scudetto.

This season, he has made 13 outings in all competitions, but is yet to find the net.
