Atletico Madrid Mulling January Blast on Rodrigo Bentancur


Spanish superpower Atletico Madrid are ready to return for Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur after seeing their approached for the Bianconeri man thwarted this summer.

Los Colchineros are said to have submitted a €30 million proposal for the Uruguay international which was significantly lower than what Juventus were hoping to get for their out-of-favour midfielder.

Bentancur joined Serie A title holders in 2017 but only managed 20 league appearances in his first-ever season in Italy. In three matches of the new campaign the former Boca Juniors starlet played only 7 minutes with Emre Can’s arrival from Liverpool limiting his first-team chances significantly.

Atletico Madrid are determined to get their man in the January transfer market, hopeful that Bentancur will be pushing for a winter exit himself in order to get his career back on track.
