Daniele Rugani news

Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has revealed that he wants a move to Chelsea, according to Standard Sport. It is understood that the player has agreed a five-year contract to move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will continue negotiations with the Old Lady on Saturday but it is said that Juventus are unwilling to sell. The player's agent Davide Torchia has revealed that Chelsea have made an offer but did not give the details of the offer.

"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," Torchia said to Radio VS, Standard Sport reports.

Torchia went ahead to imply that the right amount will get the deal done. He also said that Rugani is eager to play more games after making 22 out of 38 Serie A appearances last season.

Leonardo Bonucci has also been linked with a move back to Juventus. Rugani's agent also re-echoed Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta’s view that Leonardo Bonucci will return to Turin from AC Milan, but doesn't expect that to affect Rugani's playing time.
