Daniele Rugani’s Agent Reveals Why the Juventus Defender Is Not Expected to Reunite With Sarri at Lazio

Daniele Rugani faces an uncertain future with Juventus.

The Italian defender is set to return to the Bianconeri in a few weeks following his half-season loan stint with Cagliari.

While the long-time Juventus talent does have a pair of seasons remaining on his current contract deal with the club, he could very well part ways over the upcoming summer transfer window.

Lazio has been recently linked with a move for Rugani. However, the Italian’s agent, Davide Torchi, does not foresee such a move from transpiring due to one key reason, which he detailed further during a talk with Calciomercato.it.

He [Maurizio Sarri] won’t call him. He had him; he wanted him at Napoli and Chelsea.

When they ended up together at Juventus, he didn’t have an eye on him.

As Torchi mentioned, Rugani was far from a regular during Sarri’s one-season run with Juventus. Rugani appeared in only 10 Serie A fixtures under Sarri.

It is not yet known whether Lazio has any plans to ramp up talks with Juventus for a possible Rugani transfer move.

The Biancocelesti are well expected to bring in defensive reinforcements over the upcoming summer transfer window.
