    Juve, Bentancur straight away: he could arrive in January

    Juventus are ready to exercise their option to bring Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur that is a well-known fact but what may surprise people is that the bianconeri could take the 19-year-old as early as January.
    According to Tuttosport, CEO Beppe Marotta is considering bringing forward the deal for the player that was struck as part of Carlos Tevez’s move to the Argentinian club in the summer of 2015. Another surprise the journal claims, is the fact that Bentancur could then remain with the bianconeri for season 2017-18, instead of finding his feet in Serie A by going out on-loan.
    The highly-rated youngster has come through the youth system at Boca and has already chalked-up 32 appearances for the Buenos Aires giants. With Juventus struggling to fill the void left by Paul Pogba last summer and with Claudio Marchisio only just ready to return to first-team action, coach Max Allegri may throw Bentancur in at the deep end in Turin.
