Bentancur: No need to leave

Rodrigo Bentancur has pledged his commitment to Juventus. “They’re an incredible club. If it was up to me, I’d never leave.”

Juve are reportedly planning to overhaul their midfielder this summer, while Bentancur has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.

However, the Uruguayan told Corriere dello Sport: “I’m having a great time at Juventus, they’re an incredible club.

“If it was up to me, I’d never leave. I have no reason to. I don’t know anything about Atletico Madrid.

“I read something on social media, but no-one told me anything. I’m happy with my role, I always try to do my bit.

“I recover the ball and feed the attackers. I think last season was positive for Juventus, especially the first six months.”

The 21-year-old has played 67 times for the Bianconeri since arriving from Boca Juniors in 2017, scoring two goals, providing three assists and winning back-to-back Scudetti.
