Daniele Rugani's agent plays down Chelsea links

  Daniele Rugani's agent plays down Chelsea links The agent of Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has played down speculation of a move to Chelsea. Speaking to Sportitalia, as reported by JuveFC.com, Davide Torchia confirmed that he was holding talks with Juventus regarding the player, but they were not transfer related. When quizzed about the player’s future, Torchia insisted that Juventus were happy with the player. “I know that nobody will believe me, but I met with Paratici because it was already scheduled. I didn’t know there was going to be this storm the day before. We talked about how to improve the player and what to do going forward, but we didn’t set up any negotiations.” “We can’t say for sure in life that the player is off the market completely, but we can confirm no formal offers have arrived.” “He is happy to be there and Juve are happy with him. It was purely a coincidence we had this meeting after those reports. I can assure you we did not talk about Chelsea.” Reports emerged on Thursday linking the Blues with a €30 million bid for the Juventus player. Rugani is said to be a target for Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri a long-term admirer of the defender. Sarri, who is reportedly closing in on his move to Stamford Bridge, tried to sign the player during his time at Napoli. Rugani has struggled to hold down a regular place at Juventus, which has seen questions raised about his long-term future in Turin.

Chelsea have bid for Rugani rejected by Juventus .
Juventus have reportedly turned down Chelsea’s opening offer for central defender Daniele Rugani. According to claims from the Italian media, as cited by the Mirror, the Blues have made a concrete move to land the impressive centre-back but have seen their opening efforts rebuffed. Chelsea want to add a new centre-back to their squad this summer and it appears they are keen to shop in Italy, with both Rugani and Roma star Kostas Manolas having been linked in recent times. It’s believed that the Blues submitted an offer worth in the region of €30m for Rugani, but were knocked back by Juventus, who value the defender at a substantially higher price. Chelsea are set to have a new manager in place ahead of next season and although this ongoing predicament is yet to be solved, the club are pushing ahead with their transfer dealings. Maurizio Sarri is set to take charge at Stamford Bridge next season and according to reports, he is an admirer of Rugani’s talents.
