Report: Milan get Bentancur for €12m

Reports suggest Milan struck a €12m deal with Boca Juniors for Rodrigo Bentancur last night and he’s flying in for a medical.

According to pundit Pasquale Campopiano, negotiations stepped up a gear overnight in Argentina.

Boca Juniors agreed to sell the midfielder for €10m plus €2m bonuses.

He will sign a five-year contract worth €1.5m per season and is already en route to Italy for his medical.

Juventus had an option to buy Bentancur for €9.4m before April 20, 2017, but told Boca and Milan they were not interested in activating it.

The Uruguayan creative midfielder only turned 19 in June, but has already made his name for Boca and was specifically requested by Milan Coach Vincenzo Montella.
