Based on this Juventus transfer news, The player is high on new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri’s wish-list who is actively seeking replacement for veteran defender Gary Cahill.
Rugani’s agent Davide Torchia has now provided a fresh update in this Juventus transfer news. Speaking to Radio Vecchia Signora, Torchia said: “The Blues really like Rugani and have made an important offer. Juve are aware of the interest of Chelsea but for now they don’t want to sell the player.”
Maurizio Sarri want Rugani at Chelsea
“We know every player has a price, Rugani is a defender that would make Chelsea’s manager (Maurizio Sarri) happy and it would be a good investment for Chelsea. Rugani wants to play more games because he feels that he has the technical and moral qualities to have a career similar to those of Chiellini and Barzagli.”
Torchia also did not shy away from speaking on Leonardo Bonucci‘s potential Juventus “homecoming” and stated that the Serie A winners are very close to re-signing the player they sold to AC Milan last summer. Juventus are also open to letting Mattia Caldara to move in the open direction and join the San Siro giants on loan.
The Old Lady bosses may put Rugani’s sale on hold if Caldara moves out on loan as they are unwilling to allow two centre-backs leave the club in the same transfer window.
Bonucci to Juventus ‘confirmed’
“Bonucci? I’ve read Marotta’s words and he has basically confirmed that Bonucci will return to Juve. If Rugani remains at Juventus, his relationship with Caldara won’t be a problem at all. They are professionals and when Rugani arrived at Juve he had Barzagli, Chiellini and Bonucci ahead of him. Despite that he has still managed some meaningful game time in Turin,” Torchia concluded.
