Agent: 'Milan-Bentancur offer rejected'

“Milan presented a formal offer, but Boca Juniors rejected it,” confirms Rodrigo Bentancur’s agent.

The Rossoneri had set a deadline for Boca to accept the €15m proposal and it failed to create the necessary breakthrough.

Juventus have an option on the player, secured as part of the Carlos Tevez move last year, and were unwilling to let the 19-year-old go.

“There was no agreement between Milan and Boca Juniors,” agent Daniel Bolotnicoff told SpazioMilan.it.

“The Rossoneri presented a formal offer for the player, but Boca rejected it.”

Milan have already moved forward by agreeing a €7.5m move for Besiktas midfielder Jose Ernesto Sosa instead.

As the Argentine fills the last remaining non-EU spot in the squad, it means Bentancur cannot now join Milan this summer anyway.
