Daniele Rugani’s agent has confirmed that Juventus have no intention of selling him and the club refused a number of offers this summer.

Reports from Sportitalia and others had suggested that the 24-year-old defender was heading to Chelsea this summer to reunite with manager Maurizio Sarri, but a move failed to materialise.

Despite the rumours, his agent insists that the Bianconeri had no intention of selling Rugani this summer.

“Juventus have no desire to sell him, not even for a high price which, among other things, no-one in Italy could afford,” Davide Torchia told RMC Sport.

“However, the player has never asked to leave. Only when a very important offer arrives is it normal to listen, but Juventus have rejected all kinds of offers to keep him in Turin.

“Chelsea made a really big bid, which was close to being unthinkable for me, but Juventus didn’t relent.

“Khedira played only 10 more games than Daniele last season. I think Rugani can play even more this season.”
