A member of Italy's 2006 FIFA World Cup-winning squad, Camoranesi has been playing in the Argentine first division since February 2011, following a brief stint in the German Bundesliga with Stuttgart.

The former Juventus stalwart is Racing's ninth new signing, in view of the forthcoming Argentine Apertura championship, which begins on 3 August.
