OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Rodrigo Bentancur

April 21, 2017 - 6:42 pm

Juventus have officially confirmed the signing of Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur from Boca Juniors on a five-year contract.

The 19-year-old completed his medical at the start of the month but the deal has only been confirmed by Juventus today via a statement on the clubs official website:

“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announce that they have finalised their agreement with Boca Juniors for the outright acquisition of footballer Rodrigo Bentancur Colman for a fee of €9.5m, payable over two years.

“His purchase value may increase during the course of his contract, related to the player’s number of official games.

“In addition, Boca Juniors will be entitled to receive 50 percent of what Juventus receive in the event of the player’s future sale.

“Juventus have agreed a five-year contract with the player, which takes effect from July 1, 2017 until June 30, 2022.”

Speaking to JTV after his signing, Bentancut expressed his happiness at following in the footsteps of many former Uruguayan greats who played for the Bianconeri.

“I’m really happy. I’m delighted that a club like Juventus was interested in me.” he told JTV

“It’s a huge honour to be able to come here, I’m very happy to have this opportunity. I watch Serie A lot and I know that it’s very different to Argentina. It’s a more physical game here. It’s a big opportunity.

“Tevez? He was the first person I asked about Juventus. He told me just how big an institution Juve is.

“There have been lots of Uruguayans that have played for Juventus. It’s an honor to be part of that list now.”

    Glad that we have signed yet a promising player for a fee that is peanuts in today’s market value. But the fact that we agreed to the following is something that makes me a bit angry, I mean couldn’t we just have payed an additional 5m or so to avoid this.

    “In addition, Boca Juniors will be entitled to receive 50 percent of what Juventus receive in the event of the player’s future sale.

    That is insane. 50% of a future sale goes to Boca. If he turns out to be a superstar and plays all of his life with Juventus I will not be bothered. But if he decides to leave and we are offered 50m+ for him and Boca gets half like Raiola usually does then that is something that botheres me a lot.

        No the investment is like I said peanuts in today’s market. It’s the fact that Boca will snatch 50% of a future sale that bugs me.

    Big talent, the fee will be paid in two installments so it literally has no effect on our future dealing. We locked the fee during the tevez transfer but I doubt we’d be able to get him under 15 million right now. The 50% of future transfer fee is a bit of a cause for concern but what makes you think the board will want to sell him if he can live up to expectations? All in all, it only makes the squad more complete so no complaints on my end, I have really high hopes for this kid.

      who is his agent? it isn’t Riola Utd right?

    He has long been fancied by a plethora of other top clubs. Real and Arsenal have been watching him. His stock is highly valued abroad as it is at home..Hence why he is captain of the Uruguay U20 outfit. Who he recently led to 1st spot in the South American Championships, qualifying for the U20 world cup to be played May of this year in S Korea. Let us hope that the anglozionists pulling Trump’s strings hold fire a little longer in bullying North Korea into retaliating, as any country would if seeing the most horrific war machine ever assembled practicing destroying them, attacking them, enslaving them, in their full view.

    Somewhat annoying with the sell-on fee, but not much of a surprise given the M.O of Angelici…Not sure if there were other third parties involved as is often the case in South America, though I thought that such practices were to be outlawed by FIFA. Yet this is to be staggered, as some countries are more deeply entrenched in this routine than others…

    There were bothersome rumours earlier this year of Mendes getting his filthy claws on young Rodrigo. We can but assume that never happened or whatever involvement with Mendes or other 3rd party agents is the reason for the bothersome sell on fee.

      I personally can’t wait till we “attack and enslave” the North Koreans XD…actually never mind that! i say Trump should just drop a few MOAD’s on NK and call it a day!!! I’ve been thinking of enlisting in our Airforce or Navy just to play a part In Silly Fat Boy’s downfall! Trump has restored Pride in our armed forces, unlike the Obama piece of shit trash we had in the white house for 8 miserable years XD. The Neocon in me is Loving Trump’s first 100 days.

        North Korea have done nothing to the US, nor have they done anything to any other country. yet neither had Afghanistan, nor Libya, nor Iraq, nor Ukraine, nor Syria, nor Yemen, yet the US has led or assisted in the destruction of these socuntries.

        I truly hope your comments were somehow meant to be oddly amusing, otherwise you come across as a brain dead moron who should be shot on sight.

        It takes only a brain dead moron or sociopath with a dark sense of humour to find any praise for the US efforts to slaughter millions the world over, for no good reason other than because killing innocent people, destroying countries makes money for their overseers and also meets the agenda of their minders and true bosses, the zionist crowd.

        It is sickening and grotesque to have any pride in steady march of genocide and mass slaughter of the US war machine and its vassals.

        Thankfully, their time is decaying, eroding, and its pleasing to see Russia continually stand up and say fuck you, in their own ever so polite manner,. A battle continues between the zionist led US pigfuckers and the growing alliances elsewhere all rooted in China and Russia.

        You cannot wait until your ‘government’ ruled from Tel Aviv attacks another country for no good reason whatsoever and kills thousands if not millions of people? If that is your sincere view, you are a cunt. Nothing short, nothing less. And the world would be better off were you flayed…

        Still, perhaps you were joking? If not…

          LOL! I Was Kinda joking, on the enslavement part, but not on the attacking part lol. wow you have now sparked a whole debate with you’re 6 Paragraphs though lol. here is my take:

          Paragraph #1:
          “North Korea have done nothing to the US, nor have they done anything to any other country.”

          So i guess threatening Nuclear war because Fat Fuck Kim woke up on the wrong side of bed is nothing? I am sorry but Kim is a dictator whom like his father and grandfather Rule with a cruel iron fist and starves it’s people; but fair enough not our problem, and I do agree with your overall message that “Attacking other nations is wrong”. I am a strong proponent of The US no longer policing the world, But Kim is a mad man bullying Japan and SK and threatening with Nuclear attack!, He has also threatened the US many times! even before trump sent his Armada and we had the weak Muslim apologetic Obama in the White House. I am sorry but if you think threatening Nuclear war is “Doing nothing” then I fear you may be the Mad man.

          It is foolish and stupid in the most basic of tactical senses, To attack once we have been attacked then Attacking and preventing a disaster. I feel you are implying that we must wait for a Ruthless ignorant dictator to strike us, before we can strike back… and that is dumb!

          Paragraph #2:
          not sure witch sentence you are referring to. Some of it was indeed meant to be amusing.

          Paragraph #3: and #4(witch is more of a “PS:” sentence) XD

          WHAT!!!!???!?!?!?? LoL! Puff and Pass!!! ha ha site specific genocide examples please!!!! also I feel you are starting to get into NWO propaganda bullshit ha ha ha.

          Paragraph #5: WOW!!!!!!!!! I mean I like Putin, but common! You really want to live under his rule? AND CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!???????????? ha ha ha, all I can say is check you’re history book (If it isn’t propaganda filled) I’m sorry but to wish for Chinese rule ….That would be the Sadistic evil Moron!

          Paragraph #6:
          “government’ ruled from Tel Aviv” Sadly you have a point here, as long as the Christians keep holding political power, then yea, but that can change in one election, let’s just hope we get an Athiest or a Buddhist and not another Muslim apologetic!


          Also I really hope you Aren’t a Catholic or a Christian, because that would show great Hypocrisy, I don’t think you are since you hate “the zionist” but, i don’t know you sent many mixed signals.

          I also don’t understand how you can like Putin but not Trump, they are almost one in the same, Especially in regards to the show of Force and military might. I am baffled!

          Also for the Record i agree with you in:
          – The US should not police the world
          – Freeing ourselves from Jewish and Christian Influence!

          However i don’t agree with you, In the message i got from your reply, (i really don’t know if this is what you meant, though) :
          – The US does not have a right to self defense
          – Dictatorships and Communism GOOD! Capitalism and Democracy BAD!

          For example:

          – Trump attacked Syria: This was wrong, Sure I may not be fine with Assad’s rule, and I don’t agree with Killing hundreds of your own citizens. This is Shameful and Disgraceful! Assad deserves Nothing but a cruel death! BUT FROM HIS PEOPLE There needs to be an Uprising! a Coup! But we should play no part in it! Stay out of SYRIA!

          – North Korea! I am sorry but when people are severely brainwashed, there is no coming back! for the safety of our planet, and in this particular case, the safety of SK, Japan and the US; WE SHOULD STRIKE! We should kill Kim and end his Apocalyptic threats! Even if it means a China Annex! that is the only way! Kim can not be reasoned with! Diplomacy has been attempted and Failed!

          – Afghanistan. This is where you confuse me! Yea the war in the middle east is WRONG, but only the one for Oil! (the one Bush began, witch started a domino effect in witch we are trapped in now). I don’t see how fighting ISIS is bad? We bombed their Caves! Not to mention at this point in time ISIS controls most of the Oil, So this war was once wrong! but it is wrong no longer!!! The less brainwashed religious idiots we have walking around the better for our society! So this war is now justified as it is now self defense.

          I am a Futurist, And the European dark ages already owes us 700 years of Tech. These Weak minded Religious caveman in the middle east Are threatening our society and our existence In the name of their Pedophile prophet and Sadistic Imaginary dad(God) So i don’t see how exterminating these vile weak human pest, is a negative thing? I see you hate the Christian/Jewish Zionists for witch I applaud you for, but i feel you sympathize with the Muslims, witch just confuses me. Correct me if i am wrong.

            thegutterpoet April 27, 2017 at 11:05 am

            I will indeed correct you, Gerrard.

            Are you not aware that whilst Obama was your President, he attacked 7 predominantly muslim states, killing hundreds of thousands, displacing millions more.

            Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen.

            By fact and definition, if you have any faith in your ‘President’ holding any power beyond that of a spokesmen, Obama was a mass slaughterer of Muslims. This is irrefutable. I have little idea of your brain power, but to paint it country simple, if you kill hundreds of thousands of Muslims, send thousands of bombs into Muslim populations, it stands to reason that you probably lack love for Muslims. People generally do not want to kill, maim and destroy what they support or like.

            North Korea has attacked nobody. Their threats are always in response to threats of the US. If you were a smaller country, had sanctions placed on you, by the US (who run the UN), and you saw country after country destroyed by the US, watched the US army practising destroying your country in full view, would you say ‘great!’ or would you make moves to stand your ground? Try to make those threatening to destroy you, who have been destroying other countries at an alarming rate think more carefully before destroying you?

            I repeat, North Korea have not attacked anyone.

            I would refer to the US sponsored mass slaughter in Syria as a genocide, as I would in Libya, as I would the Israeli slow destruction of the Palestinians, and the US supported barbarism in Yemen. I would also refer to Vietnam as genocide. And then there are the countless atrocities globally the US has been responsible for since WWII, which the Russians won for the world, not the yankess…which everyone knows, other than the americans.


            Vladimir Putin is a statesmen. Donald Trump is a buffoon spokesman for the combination the anglio-zionist power structure and military industrial complex. They need war, to make money, and Israel needs war in the Middle East to further their Greater Israel project. Have you ever watched a lengthy Putin conference? He can speak for hours on end, without a telecaster, about a huge variety of issues. he is incredibly intelligent, has yet to be proven an outright deceit merchant, and has the support of the Russian people in huge numbers partly because after the Western rape and pillage routine of the former Soviet Union in the 90s, which decimated their military, industry, economy he has dragged the country back from ruin on the path to growth, slow as it may be it remains moving in the right direction, he has also returned the military, from a defensive point of view, to probably the world’s finest. Admittedly, the offensive nature of the Russian military is rather paltry. This is because, unlike the US, their defence agenda is 100% defensive in posture. They plan for basically being able to defend and repel any attack from at least 100km from their borders (in the West). In reality this would probably be closer to 25-50km, yet from all of my military studies, their defences leave even many US generals in awe.

            No they do not have 1000 military bases across the globe, nor could they ‘win’ a battle against the US anywhere in the world other than on their own territory (and within 100km of their borders). That is something to ponder, their military is 100% defensive in nature and capability. The force they have sent to Syria is very small indeed. And it has been Hizbollah and Iran who have weighed in with the majority of troops to spearhead the defence and rescue of the Syrian state and people.

            To compare Putin with Trump is at best ignorant. One is a leader, the other a buffoon spokesman.

            This is not a leader…it is a spokesman used to reading from a script, who has suddenly lost the teleprompter.



            You would never find Putin a stuttering fool unable to complete a sentence. Nope, that man can speak for several hours in front of cameras, an audience, live, with nothing but slight annoyance showing on occasion as often as his own peculiar humour appears, which is never meant for the crowd, it is simply to make himself chuckle…

            North Korea has zero chance of attacking the US. However, if the US places it army next to North Korea and keeps threatening to destroy it, practising destroying it, then by my reckoning it is North Korea who have a right to self defence. You might not realise this, but the US is not next door to North Korea…And were it not for the US army in Japan and S Korea, the chance of peace I suspect would be much greater.

            I have no idea of how deeply you have studied Russia. By which I mean, studied russian sources, non US sources, independent media sources who are not owned by the same power structure which owns your government? I suspect the answer is zero.

            Communism died out in Russia in the 90s. Many celebrated this, however the opening up of all markets, all resources, was an intentional ploy by the West, led by the US. They simply refused to allow any other country the capacity to challenge them, as they continue to do so now. The creation of oligarchs of vast wealth and foreign companies literally stealing resources left the country a shambles.
            My own opinion is that Russia is as democratic as most of the West. People are able to vote, yet the apparent choice is synthetic, as it is in the US. It has made zero difference to the direction of US foreign policy to have elected Trump. He has no power. Another cringeworthy fool.

            You have clearly missed the elections held in Syria, in 2014, with a huge voter turn-out given the circumstances and overwhelming support for Assad. This did not make the headlines in the West, for obvious reasons.


            There was no popular uprising in Syria. There was an invasion. Clearly supported directly by Turkey, Israel, KSA in the region, and by the US/UK/France beyond that. The White Helmets have been proven to be a MI6 operation funded by the US/UK, literally an al-qaeda marketing tool. It was darkly amusing to see them nominated for an Oscar then denied entry to attend the ceremony in the US. Why? Because they were deemed a national security threat…hohoho!

            And with Assad winning the war, IS and Nusra on the retreat, only a fool believes that he would launch a chemical weapons attack on his own people. He had no motive, no need. And 100% of the reports of this chemical weapons attack, were sourced from…IS and Nusra.

            You say IS controls the oil. Who do you think they are selling it to? Who is buying that oil? Turkey and Israel, our allies.

            Afghanistan was attacked illegally and thousands of lives have been lost, for the riches of a few corporate entities. Bin Laden never admitted to the 9/11 attack. The Taliban even offered to give up Bin Laden to the US, they repeated this offer several times:

            ‘show us ANY proof of his involvement, and we will give him to you. ANY proof?’

            The answer from the US was repeatedly ;

            ‘we don’t need to show you proof. We are RIGHT’.

            The decision to go to war in all of the countries subsequently invaded was made in 2000 or before, as can be found in the Project for a New American Century. This is not conjecture, those involved went on to take immensely powerful roles in the US government.

            Libya was the richest african state. Close to socialism in many ways really…free health care, free education, free power, hugely subsidised fuel and a house for every married couple to help families get a solid start in life. Child mortality levels were ever improving, life expectancy the same. The mistake he made was to push hard for other countries in Africa to remove themselves from enslavement to the dollar and World Bank. France, Uk and the US got the gold, the water reserves, the oil, and also forged a perfect hotbed of savagery in the East to then flow towards Syria. The vast majority of ‘rebels’ in Syria are foreigners, not Syrian.

            And if you wish to ponder Assad using chemical weapons, by the UN and even your own New York times, there are zero proven cases of this, yet 50+ proven cases of the ‘rebels’ using chemical weapons.

            I am not of any religious leaning. Nor do I see the so called religious war as anything but manufactured and wholly consumed by the same majority who believe everything they are told by proven deceit merchants.

            Ukraine was overtly supported by the US. Crimea was not stolen, it was saved. There was a referendum, which was as legal as the Kosovan referendum. When you look at Donbass and Luhansk, the horror of those war torn areas, is it any surprise that the crimean wished to avoid smooch carnage? NATO wanted Crimea to cripple the Black Sea Fleet. Ukraine is now fucked. Like everywhere else the US attacks or supports war by proxy. They have overseen the rise of overt neo nazis…

            It has been painfully clear for many moons, my friend, that the US is the most destructive force on the planet; led by Tel Aviv and their zionist pals in the financial and media industries, alongside the military industrial complex. Crimes against Humanity is very much their bread and butter. It is how they continue to retain power and stop any potential obstacles gaining enough power to challenge them.

            And yet look at the majority of morons in the West these days…They have zero capacity for even basic critical thinking. For example…

            In 2014, Assad had invited the UN chemical weapons inspectors into Damascus. he had been begging them to come. Finally they went. The day after they arrived we were told, not by the UN investigators but by our ‘leaders’ such as Obama and Cameron that Assad had launched a chemical weapons attack. right next door to the chemical weapons inspectors he had invited to Damascus to prove he was not using chemical weapons.

            Now…what kind of brain dead cretin would believe such tripe?

            I am charged with murder. the police visit my house. I go to make them a cup of tea, nip next door and cut the throats of my neighbours, then serve tea with biscuits?

            Only the brain washed would swallow up some tripe without stopping to ponder ‘what the fuck?’

            Same as the MH17 routine. What could the Donbass fighters and Russia possibly have to gain from downing a civilian airliner full of westerners? What kind of amoeba shaped as a human believes that Putin and the Donbass crowds got together and tried to work out how to get global support for their cause, and finally, one of the said..
            ‘ive got it! let us take down a civilian airliner full of westerners!’

            What irks me the most, is that there very much is social conditioning underway on a mass scale. It happens subliminally and also so basically with lies repeated word for word a billion times over, so much, that it becomes ‘truth’. with barely anyone able to question what is obvious nonsense.

            The police, of all ages, of all cultures, start with two questions-
            A. Evidence
            B. Motive

            100% of the allegations against our ‘enemies’ have neither A nor B. In fact the only motive that seems logical is that the charges and accusations. Yet I find people, even some I consider at least moderately intelligent, regurgitating MSM fare…No matter how much they are lied to, they still view the same sources as real news. And when that is so widespread, we are fucked…Best to try seek a wicked valkyrie to love, adore and cherish, then make moves to head to the hills…

          Same here, my friend. He seemed of the four we took options on the most interesting. He has hardly set the world alight at Santa Fe…so could be a Freddy Adu…or…he just needs to find the right club and his true potential can be unleashed. I remain reasonably happy with the Bentancur move from the Tevez deal and we do still have some form of option on Cubas, signed ‘in synergy’ with our pals at Pescara…
