Hernanes overjoyed by Juventus move

The former Inter midfielder has thanked his old club after his deadline day move to Turin before excitedly posing with his new jersey

Hernanes has expressed his joy at joining Juventus from Inter, while at the same time thanking his former club’s fans for their support during his time at San Siro.

The Brazil international only joined the Nerazzurri from Lazio in January 2014 but sealed an €11 million move to Turin on Monday after Massimiliano Allegri’s men had missed out on the signing of Julian Draxler.

Hernanes promptly took to Instagram to bid a fond farewell to the Inter faithful, writing: “First of all, I wanted to say goodbye to the Interista family.

“And to say thank you to this great club, which gave me the opportunity to live a rich and fascinating experience in the Inter jersey for a year and a half.

“And to [say thank you to] the Nerazzurri fans for all of the affection received.

“Thanks a million from the bottom of my heart to all of you.”

However, at the same time, Hernanes could barely contain his delight after sealing his sudden switch to Juve and described the Italian champions as one of the world’s most important clubs.

“It’s with pride and honour that I present to you my new jersey,” he added. “I am motivated to the maximum to enjoy this new experience as best I can.

“And happy to know another great, beautiful and important Italian city like Torino, living with other great people and professionals, and representing one of the most important clubs in Italy and the world!

“And tomorrow I will show you what’s behind the jersey,” he added, alluding to his new number.
