Agent: 'Juve keeping Rugani'

Daniele Rugani “had some opportunities, but Juventus preferred to keep him,” said the defender’s agent, ruling out new arrivals.

The former Empoli man had been due to leave this summer, with negotiations for transfers to Arsenal, Manchester United, Roma, Milan and most recently even Barcelona.

However, with Giorgio Chiellini’s serious knee injury keeping the captain out for around six months, it was decided to block Rugani’s exit rather than purchase a replacement.

Serious knee injury for Chiellini

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini has been diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will require surgery.

The Bianconeri announced the news this evening, as he sustained the injury during today’s training session.

More details will be available after the operation, but this type of injury usually requires at least three to six months out, depending on the severity of the tear.

“During today's training, Giorgio Chiellini sustained a sprain of his right knee,” read a statement.

Demiral to Milan, Rugani stays?

Milan are back in negotiations with Juventus for €35m-rated defender Merih Demiral, which would mean Daniele Rugani’s move to Roma is off.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, talks have resumed over the last couple of days, after Milan had seen their original Demiral approach rejected.

The 21-year-old Turkey international only has six months of Serie A football under his belt at Sassuolo before he earned a move to Juve worth €18m.

Roma go for Rugani or N'Koulou

Roma continue negotiations with Juventus for Daniele Rugani, but are moving their focus towards Torino centre-back Nicolas N’Koulou.

The Bianconeri’s asking price of €30m is considered excessive and this week the Giallorossi refused to include youth team players Alessio Riccardi and Zan Celar in the deal.

With a €10m gap between demand and offer, the situation is difficult, but they are ready to continue talks.

There had been talk already of the Giallorossi pumping the brakes on the move, as Juve wanted €24m plus youth team players Alessio Riccardi and Zan Celar.

However, that would’ve taken the value of the transfer to around €40m rather than the original €30m.

Roma sacrifice Riccardi for Rugani?

Reports claim Roma are on the verge of signing Daniele Rugani, with Juventus possibly receiving Alessio Riccardi in part exchange.

The defender would have also committed to a five-year contract worth €2.5m plus bonuses.
