Rodrigo Bentancur

We've all heard about him but I dont think any of us have probably seen him play. We got an option for him by selling Tevez back to Boca on the cheap and Marotta confirmed a while back that we would activate it. Recently someone posted a picture of the contract and it seems confirmed that he will be at Juve in June.

Everyone has a lot of good words and hype for him in Boca.

Gago (his current teammate)
"I like him a lot, It has been 3 years since I watch him play and he has incredible potential. Im surprised, he must grow and learn but he has much quality"

His coach:
“Bentancur is still young, but very talented,”.

“He is a midfielder who combines great technique, a strong work rate, pace and above all he is very intelligent.

“Physically he’s pretty strong, is 1.85m tall and good in the air. In terms of his characteristics, I’d say he is similar to an early Pogba.

“Rodrigo is a versatile midfielder. I usually play him in a 4-2-3-1 system in an attacking role. Bentancur can pass well and I am convinced he can easily play in other midfield positions.”

Apparently Boca were reluctant to sell him on the cheap and the transfer includes a deal where they get part of a future sale. That points towards real belief that he will be great.

Lets see what he can do.

Didn't know he was a physical midfielder, this becomes interesting. At this point i dunno why i always thought of him as the typical short, pacey, technical South American AM...

I'm 1.85m myself and i believe this is the perfect height for a midfielder. Most of the times, players taller than that have less agility and work-rate. And shorter than that... well i don't see it as a flaw, but when it comes to Juve, we already have a lot of short midfielders. That's why this summer i said: i prefer we don't buy Verratti for the moment Thumbs up

So i'm curious to see more of Bentancur

he seems promising yet some Boca fans say he hasn't prove anything but i don't know what their opinion is worth since there might be frustration to see him leave

oh and i wouldn't care much about his FIFA rating, for young players they usually get it wrong.

But the comment section provides feed-back from fans

Bentancur 'South American Pogba'
Football Italia14 Hours Ago

Rodrigo Bentancur has made a huge impression on Juventus and his former Boca Juniors Coach trusts “in a year he’ll be compared to Paul Pogba.”

The Uruguayan only turned 20 in June, but while other new buys such as Federico Bernardeschi are struggling to get playing time, Bentancur already has four Serie A appearances and started both Champions League games.

“Here in Argentina, there were those who said Bentancur would remain at most for six months at Juventus and then return to Boca,” his former Coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto told Tuttosport.

“Instead, he is putting in some great performances for the Bianconeri and Uruguay called him up to the senior national team. I am proud of him.”

Bentancur stepped in at the last minute for injured Miralem Pjanic in the 2-0 victory over Olympiakos on Wednesday and was one of their best performers on the night.

“I know the lad and spent a year and a half working with him: we are talking about a player with exceptional quality,” continued former Boca boss Schelotto.

“He is intelligent and has incredible character: trust me, the best is yet to come. I had called him the ‘South American Pogba’ and I confirm he is at that level.

“Let Rodrigo have a full season in Europe and you’ll see in a year he will be compared to Pogba.

“The thing about Rodrigo is that he moves like a 30-year-old. Recovering the ball is a natural gift he has, but he’s young and still has so many areas he can improve in.

“He’s a box-to-box midfielder and what he really needs to work on is his performance in the opposite penalty area: he ought to be scoring at least five goals per season.”

He does look better than Pogba when he arrived buy iirc Pogba was 18/19?

Also Pogba had that crazy jump in technique/creativity when he became able to change a game easily after a few seasons. We'll see if Bentancur grows in that direction or in a more regista one.
