Juve defender has recently opened up on Chelsea links which were surrounding his person, denying he had any plans of joining the Blues as of lately:

“I didn’t receive any call from Sarri”, Rugani said.

“I am studying English but that’s not linked with work. I think it’s something important for my personal growth and for general culture”.

“Of course I want to play, everybody wants to play more games but it’s also important the position in the group and I know my value”.

Davide Torchia, Daniele Rugani’s agent has also swept away all Chelsea rumours, admitting his client has never been interested

“Rugani has never been placed on the market by Juventus and that means he has done something right,” agent Davide Torchia told RMC Radio.

“Without doubt he will stay at Juve in January. Rugani is an old-fashioned player, committed to his profession and with above all else the desire to improve himself.

“Rugani is a reliable player, someone worthy of Juventus, who ensures he is always ready. A player doesn’t stay at Juventus for four years without deserving it.”
