Monaco drop Rugani for Caceres

Monaco have turned to Martin Caceres, it’s reported, so Juventus push Daniele Rugani towards Roma or Barcelona.

Rugani had been the subject of discussions between the two clubs, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport transfer writer Nicolò Schira those talks have cooled considerably.

Instead, Monaco are moving their focus towards another former Juventus defender Caceres, who is currently a free agent.

The 32-year-old Uruguay international had spent the last six months on loan at Lazio.

As for Rugani, the Italian centre-back is still of interest to Roma, but only on loan with option to buy for a total €30m.

Juve are hoping Barcelona will want Rugani in a similar payment structure.
