Chairman Daniel Levy added: "I've known Fabio for a number of years and he brings with him a wealth of experience in scouting, youth and football operations.
"He has an outstanding track record in assembling competitive squads. As we all know, Juventus have been a highly successful club and he has been a major part of that.
