Stuttgart are ready to sign permanently on-loan Juventus fullback Cristian Molinaro.

Molinaro joined Stuttgart on-loan in January and has done enough to convince the Bundesliga giants to buy him outright.

"Stuttgart has decided to utilise the option, which expired on May 31," Pasquale Gallo told TMW. "Everything has been confirmed, and there is no doubt.

"He will sign a four-year deal, and Juventus will get €4 million."
