Juventus have announced the signing of starlet Christian Makoun.
Makoun was a target of Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer with many expecting him to move to the Bernabeu.
But the Los Merengues have been dealt a blow by Juventus who moved swiftly to sign the teenage Venezuelan.
Juventus began negotiations with Venezuelan side Zamora last week and have moved quickly to sign the teenage midfield sensation from the grasp of Real Madrid.
“Let’s talk about Frederic Makoun Reyes, a Venezuelan midfielder and central defender with a Belgian passport who has joined Juventus from Asociačín Civil Zamora FC.” Juventus said in their official statement, according to Calciomercato.

Makoun, 20, has a lot of experience despite his young age, he has played in the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana. He also played a huge part in Zamora winning the Venezuelan League last season, making a vast number of appearances for the team.
Makoun joins Emre Can, Leandro Spinazzola, Mattia Caldara and Cristiano Ronaldo as the summer additions of the Old Lady so far this summer.
