Rodrigo Bentancur renewed his contract with Juventus for another five seasons. The class of 1997 midfielder's new deal will expire in 2024 as he's entering his third season in the bianconero shirt. The club released the following statement following the renewal:
"After only making his Bianconeri bow two years ago, Bentancur has shown in that time that he can be a dependable, intelligent and an agile midfielder, qho demonstrates his class each time he steps onto the pitch. Arriving from Boca Juniors before the start of the 2017/18 season, fans were already curious to see what impact he would bring to the team, and he duly answered with a large of number of mature displays..
Although we talk about his maturity, we must remember that Rodrigo is still just 21 years of age, despite having already gone on to be crowned a league champion on four different occasions (two with Juventus and two with Boca Juniors), winning seven trophies overall in his club career.
Young and talented are two recurrent terms if we talk about him, and he was among the list of Bianconeri who scored this season, with Moise Kean the only player younger than him in the team to find the back of the net. Regarding his goals, the two he scored in the recently concluded campaign have coincided with as many victories.
Earlier we spoke about the key tasks that are responsible for a midfielder: a burdensome task, to take control of, and one which involves a sound vision of the game’s geometries,along with spirit and sacrifice. It's because of these factors that it is no coincidence that Rodrigo is second among the Bianconeri's midfielders to have recovered the most ballsthis past season (201, only Pjanic had more than him).
His career so far can best be described as one with a recent promising past, a brilliant present and a future waiting to be written: all with the Juventus jersey on his back."
