Roma have confirmed the signing of defender Bryan Reynolds, initially on loan for the rest of the season but with an obligation to buy.
Teenager Reynolds, who had also been linked with Juventus, arrives from Dallas for a loan fee of €100,000, describing the move as a “dream come true” as he continues his career in Europe.
The 19-year-old has also provisionally agreed a four-year contract should he join on a permanent basis, with an initial fee set at €6.75million. However, as part of the terms, there are a number of performance-related clauses that could be worth a total of €5.65m.
MLS will also retain the right to 15 per cent of the profit on any future sale of the highly rated full-back, after factoring in the total amount already paid for the player at the time of his departure.
“I am excited and humbled to join Roma. It is a dream come true,” Reynolds said.
“After speaking to the club, I quickly realised that this is the ideal place for me to improve and develop as a footballer.
“My challenge now is to keep improving day after day: I will work hard to achieve great things for this club.”
