It has been reported Chelsea are closing in on a move to land defender Daniele Rugani to Stamford Bridge from Juventus in the next weeks.
However, hist agent Daniele Torchia believes a move to the Premier League giants is anything but done. He told Tuttomercatoweb: “I am happy for Sarri because no one believes he could get there and instead here his is coaching Chelsea.
“Everyone thinks that [Rugani] follows him to Chelsea, but it must be considered that Juventus also did not accept any negotiations in the past, either with Napoli nor with any other teams and has always expressed the will to keep the player and today that has not changed.
“To date, that will has not changed and Rugani himself has not expressed a willingness to go elsewhere. However, it must also be said that if there is a request it will be heard because in football, respect is needed.”
Juventus are reportedly considering a late bid for Atletico Madrid star Diego Godin, a move which could allow Rugani to leave Allianz Stadium this summer.
