Juventus reportedly turned down an approach from Atletico Madrid for Uruguay international Rodrigo Bentancur.
According to Goal.com, his performances for both Uruguay at the World Cup and Juve at club level won over Atleti Coach Diego Simeone.
Considering he is quite far down the pecking order behind Sami Khedira and Miralem Pjanic, Atletico Madrid thought they could talk the Bianconeri into releasing Bentancur.
However, the Turin giants are determined to hang on to him for the future.
