Daniele Rugani’s agent Davide Torchia has played down talk of a move to Chelsea this summer.
The Juventus defender has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer amid links both to Arsenal and Chelsea.
“I know that nobody will believe me, but I met with Juventus sport director Paratici because it was already scheduled,” Torchia claimed.
“I didn’t know there was going to be this storm the day before. We talked about how to improve the player and what to do going forward, but we didn’t set up any negotiations.
“We can’t say for sure in life that the player is off the market completely, but we can confirm no formal offers have arrived.
“He is happy to be there and Juve are happy with him. It was purely a coincidence we had this meeting after those reports. I can assure you we did not talk about Chelsea.”
Rugani has made seven appearances for the Italian national team since making his debut in 2016.
