Chelsea Latest Transfer News – Daniele Rugani could shift bases along with Maurizio Sarri
With reports of former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri inching closer to that managerial post at Stamford Bridge, the rumours have also started flying thick and fast regarding who he will bring with him from Italy. One player who could be on his way to Chelsea as reported by Sportitalia is Juventus defender Daniele Rugani. The 23-year-old has struggled to find much game time in Allegri’s Juventus set-up but remains a highly talented defender, who in a short time will become part of Italy’s number one central defensive pairing.
Sarri has worked with Rugani during his days with Empoli and even tried to bring him to Napoli but at that time Juventus didn’t want to strengthen a direct opposition and refused the deal. Now that Sarri is close to securing his position in London, a move to the Premier League and a chance to work with one of the top coaches in the World could be an offer too tempting to refuse for the youngster.
Once Sarri is confirmed, his first objective will be to revamp the Chelsea defence which looked completed punctured during the 2017-2018 campaign and Rugani could be a key piece in that plan.

Maurizio Sarri is still under the contract at Napoli, even though the Italian club announced Carlo Ancelloti as their new manager. The Chelsea hierarchy are currently considering whether they should pay out Conte’s contract of £9million. However, according to Chelsea Latest News Sarri’s management and intermediary Fali Ramadani are in Milan at the moment trying to close out the deal which will see the 59-year-old shift bases to London.
Sarri’s agent Alessandro Pellegrini was also part of these discussions in Milan and is working closely with the Chelsea management to get the deal through as soon as possible. If you remember, a few days back we reported that Sarri was sighted in London last week, which further fueled rumours of his move to Chelsea.
