Juventus agree deal for Boca Juniors starlet

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport has learned that Juventus have reached an agreement to sign Argentine midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur from Boca Juniors.

The Bianconeri had secured the first option on the youngster when they sold Carlos Tevez, and they decided to step up their interest in the talented footballer after a host of top European clubs started casting admiring glances his way.

Even though the transfer has been agreed, Bentancur will not be moving to Turin this summer, but rather in a year’s time, when a non-EU berth in the squad opens up.

Juventus have one more slot for a non-EU player on the current roster, but the expected return of Juan Guillermo Cuadrado means the 19-year-old will not be arriving before next summer.

Bentancur has already established himself as a first team regular at Boca Juniors, making 29 league outings for the La Bombonera outfit and scoring 1 goal.
