Juventus defender completes move away from club

Juventus have finally reached an agreement to offload one of their players, with them having a very large squad and wanting to trim the wage bill.


They have now successfully gotten out of favour defender Daniele Rugani out of the club, loaning him out to Stade Rennais.


Whilst Juventus would have liked to sell Rugani permanently, they could only manage to loan him out, with him also attracting the interest of West Ham United and Sevilla, yet none of them made a bid to sign him on a permanent deal.


Rennes will be competing in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history, with them slowly assembling a very strong side which includes the highly-rated youngster Eduardo Camavinga and fellow France international Steven Nzonzi who is on loan from Juventus' rivals AS Roma.


The French side have agreed to pay Juventus a loan fee of €1.5 million, and they will also be paying his full salary whilst he plays for them.


However, whilst Juventus are keen on selling him, Rennes did not want an option or obligation to buy Rugani at the end of the loan spell, thus making it simply a season-long loan move.


With Rugani being offloaded, it now gives Juve some space in the team to accommodate a new player a their respective wage.


Juventus are very keen on signing Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa, and they will have to make sure to raise some funds beforehand, with the club from Florence demanding a hefty fee for the Italian.
