Juventus look for Bentancur renewal

Juventus are reportedly keen to extend Rodrigo Bentancur’s contract, as well as working out a deal with Boca Juniors to remove his sell-on clause.

The Uruguayan midfielder has become a key man for the Bianconeri in recent weeks, and he scored the opening goal against Fiorentina on Saturday evening.

As part of the deal which took him to Turin, Boca will be entitled to 50 per cent of any future sale.

According to Tuttosport, Juve are keen to tie Bentancur to a new contract, as well as improving his salary.

They will also look to work out a deal with Boca to remove the clause, potentially by paying a lump sum to the Argentine side or removing the percentage they’d be due.

The clause effectively acts as a deterrent to any future sale, so the Xeneizes may well agree rather than risk never getting any fee.
