The emotionally fragile striker was told in no uncertain terms that with the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Higuain era at Juventus was over. Pipita tried his best to argue his case, even returning from vacation in lean shape (arguably the leanest he’d ever been), but the dye was already cast.

Rugani awaits Juve signal

Daniele Rugani’s agent confirms he is of interest to other clubs and is waiting for a signal from Juventus. “There are five defenders now…”

The centre-back had been the subject of several offers from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Napoli in recent months, but always turned them down.

“My characteristics are to control the game, stay in the middle and organise the team but I can adapt as well,” the Italy international told his club’s official website.
