The Serie A champions' CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed last month that Juve were set to sign the 19-year-old midfielder.

As part of the deal to send Carlos Tevez back to Boca, Juve were given first option to sign Bentancur.

"It is already signed. When I was in Switzerland recently Juventus informed me that that they were going to activate the option so I will travel to Turin soon in order to complete the deal," Angelici told TyC Sports

"I think it's very good business for Boca. Juventus will pay €7.5m for 50 per cent of his rights.

"He must have something because there were a lot of clubs interested. Real Madrid made a proposal, Manchester [United] also came and Milan made a €14m formal offer to sign him."
