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.
