Kulusevski are on the verge of leaving Juventus to join Tottenham Hotspur in this January transfer window, and the Bianconeri won’t miss them.
Both Kulusevski and Bentancur will reportedly join Antonio Conte’s side on a deal worth €60m in total.
Previous reports suggest that both teams have reached an agreement for the deal following intensive talks last night.
Most Juventus fans celebrate their departures, and that sentiment might be on point.
Their contribution under Massimiliano Allegri this season has been far from impressive.
Since his arrival to Juventus in 2020, Kulusevski has only shown flashes of his potential.
He collected 47 competitive appearances for Juve in his first season in Turin under Andrea Pirlo.
But he never really put on consistent performances.
This season, he failed to convince Massimiliano Allegri as the Tuscan coach doesn’t consider Kulusevski a starter.
Even Federico Chiesa’s season-ending injury was not enough for Allegri to put any trust in the Swede.
Allegri has more confidence in Juan Cuadrado, Federico Bernardeschi, and Paulo Dybala instead of Kulusevski, so the best option is to leave.
Meanwhile, Bentancur is also unlikely to be missed by Juventus, especially if they do sign Denis Zakaria.
Despite having plenty of opportunities this season under Allegri’s leadership, the Uruguayan has not played a vital part in Turin.
Even without a new arrival, Juve still has Adrien Rabiot and Weston McKennie in that role, and a sale in the region of €20m is a fair fee for what Rodrigo has proved Juventus so far.
The Uruguayan international has made 26 appearances without scoring any goals this season.
And the Bianconeri won’t be lacking quality in midfield despite seeing him leave.
What lies ahead for Juventus?
Juventus will be hosting Hellas Verona at the Allianz Stadium in Serie A on 6th February.
