The Juventus youngster Rodrigo Bentancur has had a very good start of the Serie A season and we are not the only ones noticing it. The Uruguayan has gone from being a reserve player to an important piece in the Juventus puzzle.

Massimiliano Allegri has given the midfielder more playtime while players like Sami Khedira and Emre Can have been on the injury list. Now since the player has increased its share, Juventus looks to try to remove the clause that gives 50% to Boca Juniors in a potential transfer.

According to Calciomercato Juventus isn’t ready to sell Bentancur at this moment, but his appearances have been notified many clubs. Atletico Madrid made an offer to Juventus to sign the youngster last summer, but no deal was done.

Now According to Corriere dello Sport it may seem to be a busy transfer window in January for Juventus since Barcelona now have joined the race. The Catalan club is apparently planning a 60 million euro bid for the midfielder after his sensational start of the season.
