Agent: 'Why Rugani chose Rennes'

Daniele Rugani’s agent explains why he chose to leave Juventus on loan for Rennes. ‘The offers from Germany, England and Spain were holding back.’

The defender made the transfer on a dry loan, so there is no option to buy, with Rennes covering his salary and paying €1.5m.

“Rennes had been interested for a while, but there weren’t the conditions to make it work,” agent Davide Torchia told Tuttojuve.com.

Juventus closer to a Chiesa deal
