Juventus have confirmed they will activate their option for Boca Juniors talent Rodrigo Bentancur.
The 19-year-old Argentine was wanted by Milan over the summer, but Juve refused to relinquish their option to buy for €9.4m plus €1m bonuses before April 20 2017.
“We monitor promising youngsters, we have an option on Bentancur derived from the sale of Carlos Tevez and I think we will activate it,” director Beppe Marotta told Mediaset Premium.
“It is an operation we will make for next season.”
Milan had offered €15m, but Juve would not release their option and barred Boca from selling.
