Cuenca has already trained with the senior side, and it was revealed last month that the Rossoneri beat clubs such as Barcelona to his signature, which says a lot about how highly rated the 17-year-old midfielder is.

There were problems in getting clearance for the teenager, but among other sources are now reporting that Milan have made the purchase of Cuenca official. reported that an agreement was reached with his side Deportivo Capiata (in his native Paraguay) on the basis of a €500k fee plus 10% of a future resale.

He has already played the last Viareggio Cup with the Rossoneri shirt, and the young South American talent will reinforce the Rossoneri Primavera coached by Ignazio Abate now that the deal has been made fully official.
