Milan have reportedly given Boca Juniors a deadline to accept €13m plus bonuses for Rodrigo Bentancur or they’ll look elsewhere.
South American sources seem confident the deal is done for a total of €15m, including €2m add-ons, and even suggested he was already flying out for a medical.
However, Italian papers are much more cautious and insist Boca haven’t ruled Juventus out of the running yet.
Sky Sport Italia claim this evening that Milan have set a deadline of midnight on Sunday to accept the offer or forget the whole affair.
The Rossoneri hope the player can pressure Boca into making the decision, as he has his heart set on San Siro.
His club would prefer Juventus, as they’d leave him on loan in Argentina for one more season.
Juve have an option to buy Bentancur for €9.4m before April 2017, although it could be closer to €7.5m if they activate it now.
