Report: Atleti want Bentancur

Atletico Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Atleti have already asked Juve about signing Bentancur but were given a ‘negative’ response.

However, the newspaper notes Los Colchoneros have not abandoned their interest and could go back in for the 20-year-old.

The Uruguayan joined the Bianconeri from Boca Juniors last summer and has made 20 appearances in 2017-18.

On the other hand, just five of them have been starts in Serie A, while Atleti’s midfield is in need of a revamp.
