Chelsea to get two Juventus players

Cristiano Ronaldo news

Juventus are willing sell striker Gonzalo Higuain and central defender Daniele Rugani to Chelsea, according to Mirror Football.

Juventus are hoping to get enough money from these two deals to finance their £88m move for Real Madrid's superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to the MailOnline, Chelsea have reached an agreement to buy Higuain for £53m. Juventus bought Higuain from Napoli for £79m in the summer of 2016. Daniele Rugani could cost the Blues £35m.

With Alvaro Morata being linked out of Chelsea after his low key performance last season, Higuain could be what Chelsea need to get among the goals in the new season.

The former Real Madrid striker scored 16 Series A goals out of 32 games last season. Daniele Rugani made 22 Serie A appearances for Juve last season, helping them win the title for another season.

Chelsea's move for Daniele Rugani comes as a surprise as they already have central defenders that include Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Kurt Zouma.

The move for Rugani may have been sanctioned by incoming Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri who is set to join the Blues from Napoli in the coming days.
