Daniele Rugani could leave Juventus

July 26, 2019

Daniele Rugani could leave Juventus this summer, despite having signed a contract extension earlier in the year.

The defender has been on the fringes of the team since the return of Leonardo Bonucci, and his agent Davide Torchia believes there may be opportunities elsewhere.

“With the balance needed in the squad and also economically, it is possible Juventus will try to sell someone. When you go to Juventus, you are aware that there’s competition for places,” Torchia told Tuttomercatoweb.

“He knows what Maurizio Sarri wants, having worked with him at Empoli, but on the other hand, a player like Daniele must have the desire to push for more.

“Obviously, the signals from the club have to be precise: there are five defenders now and if a player only has one game per year in the Coppa Italia, he has to consider his options.

“If they continue to believe in the player and the Coach knows that too, then he’ll continue the growth process. I think that is the objective of the club, too.

“Last season the decision to say no to Chelsea was not just the club, but ours too. We were happy to stay and Juve were happy to keep us.

“Now, he has a contract until June 2024 and the renewal at those figures certainly sent a signal. There are many talented players in his role now, we’ll see what happens.

“It’s only natural that there are other clubs interested in Rugani.”

Gazzetta Dello Sport report this morning that Juve may cash-in on Rugani this summer and value him at €30m.
