Juve to snap up Boca youngster

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed they will sign Uruguayan teenage sensation Rodrigo Bentancur from Argentine club Boca Juniors.

The Serie A champions secured the buying rights for the 19-year-old midfielder in a deal that saw Carlos Tevez make the move the other way back in 2015.

The Turin-based outfit's CEO revealed to Mediaset that they will complete the transfer of the highly-rated teenager at the end of this season.

"We've got a buying right on Bentancur as part of the sale of Tevez and almost certainly we will make use of it," he said.

"It will be a transfer that we do for the 2017/18 season."

Massimiliano Allegri bolstered his squad with the acquisitions of Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Marko Pjaca and Mario Lemina this season and have enjoyed a strong start to the campaign, despite losing 2-0 to Inter on Sunday.
