Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay €50m to sign Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, who will be offered a €5m per season contract.
The centre-back worked with new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri at Empoli, but has struggled to hold down a regular place in Turin.
Despite his agent insisting today that the Bianconeri don’t want to sell, SportItalia is reporting that a meeting will take place in Milan later this week to close a deal.
Juve are ready to accept a bid of €50m for the defender, who will be offered a contract worth €5m per season.
Sarri wants to have Rugani by the weekend, as protracted talks between Chelsea and Napoli to release the Coach have already robbed him of part of pre-season.
