Rodrigo Bentancur has confirmed his move to Juve this summer, declaring “With Juventus, it’s all done.”

The 19-year-old Uruguayan has long been tipped to join the Bianconeri, given that Juve have retained an option on the player as part of a deal that saw Carlos Tevez return to Boca Juniors two summers back. Juve Director Beppe Marotta confirmed last year that Bentancur was a target for the club: “We have an option on him from the Tevez deal with Boca Juniors; an option that we will exercise next season.

Speaking today, Bentancur confirmed the deal is all but complete: “With Juventus, it’s all done,” he told ESPN Radio.

“You’ll see it soon, when I come to Turin for a medical. Now I just want to be quiet and think about Boca: I want to become a champion with this shirt.

“My family also help me keep my feet on the ground. I want to leave this club with a trophy. From here on, I’ll play to the death.”

There are still some details that need to be confirmed, with differing reports on the total value of the deal. It was initially suggested that Juve will pay €9.5m for Bentancur, with a further €2m in bonuses. There has been mention of Boca getting up to 50% of any future sale but that seems a remarkably high percentage, given the way Juve tend to operate.

Bentancur is expected in Turin in the coming month to complete his Juve medical before joining the club proper in the summer. It’s also been reported that he may go straight out on loan to another Serie A side to gain experience and playing time.
